Nicky Wijns


Hi, I’m Nicky, owner of Litterate. Translation, proofreading, Dutch and Russian language training – language, both spoken and written, is at the heart of everything I do. Whether you’re looking for a translation that conveys the essence of the original text or want to improve your Dutch in order to chat with colleagues and clients, I’ll put my extensive knowledge and expertise to work for you.

As cliché as it may sound, I’ve been fascinated by words and images ever since I was a child. From the moment I first learned to turn the pages of a magazine (we didn’t have e-readers back then!), I read everything I could get my hands on. Some of my most treasured memories include learning to read, my first visit to the library, and the first article I wrote for the school newspaper.

Fast-forward to the present: I’ve traded the picture books for an e-reader and built a career on my lifelong love of languages. I translate French, English and Russian texts into Dutch, making sure they hit their mark, whether the goal is to inform, persuade or drive sales. I also help people to improve their Dutch and Russian skills with tailor-made language training (and a healthy dose of enthusiasm!). These complementary activities have allowed me to evolve into an all-round language professional.

Whether you’re looking for a snappy translation, inspiring language lessons or expert language advice, you’ve come to the right place. Take the first step toward a great working relationship and get in touch with Litterate today!
