UNDRR Terminology in Translation: Launch

On 29 October 2021 the UNDRR Terminology translations in Kono, Krio, Limba, Mende, and Themne were launched.

In a big event, hosted at the Radisson Bue Mammy Yoko Hotel, Aberdeen, Freetown, we had the great honor to welcome the UN Resident Representative, as well as high representatives from NDMA, UNDP, the Ministry of Education of Sierra Leone, and the German Embassy.

At the launch of the book, the translators received a certificate recognizing their huge commitment and contribution to the success of this project. A list of all translators contributing to this project can be found in the dictionary (p.8).

Insights into Training and Workshops

For five months, several training and workshops took place all across Sierra Leone. While the trainings where hosted in Freetown and Makeni, the workshops brought the language teams in every corner of Sierra Leone - from the coast of Freetown, to the mountains region of Kabala and close to the Liberian border in Kono.
