My name is Nicole Hawkesford, and I am a professional translator and linguist based in North London, specialising in the life sciences sector.

My passion for languages emerged at a young age and since then, in addition to French and Spanish, I have variously studied Russian, Greek, Polish and Chinese! Professionally, I work from French and Spanish into English, and I am currently focusing my language studies on Mandarin Chinese.

In case you were wondering about the name ‘Awendan’, it is an Old English word meaning to turn, transform, or translate. The header image is a graphic rendering of a photograph I took of the City of London skyline, from the vantage point Alexandra Palace, near where I live in North London.

For any general enquiries or if you have a specific translation or language project in mind, contact me today using the form below.
