Lydia Nockels

Owner, translator and editor

Born in northern England, Lydia didn’t move to Quebec until 2012! The language, the wide, open spaces and its gastronomic specialty, poutine, soon had her under its spell, and she even decided to plant her roots in a beautiful area: La Matanie!

However, her love of languages began at a young age and, over time, led her to complete a bachelor’s degree in French and Spanish at the University of Northumbria, in Newcastle. She now (finally!) proudly holds a master’s degree in Translation Studies, which is nothing to be sneezed at!

Lydia is proud to have translated, edited and written millions of words since 2012, for both individuals and major companies. Her attention to detail and the quality of her services have enabled Lydia to make a name for herself both in Canada and overseas!

For Lydia, the beauty of the internet is being able to meet new clients, who just like her, are globally focused!
