Nicki Bone

My love of languages – and a desire to apply my language skills in a positive and practical way – have shaped my academic study and my professional career. After a 20-year career in front-line international sales and marketing, I established N.B. Language Works in 2013, combining my commercial experience and language skills to help companies and organisations achieve their goals in English-speaking markets.

I describe myself as a commercial linguist: I speak your language and think like a business. I’m convinced that effective communication is key to success, and I’ve mastered the art of balancing tight deadlines with the need for accuracy and excellence. My areas of specialism reflect my professional experience and my personal interests and my aim is always to make a positive impact.
