About me
My name is Ioannis Lachanis and I am a native Greek freelance translator living in Edinbugh, UK.

I have been providing professional translation services since 2005. As of 2008 I have been working full-time as a freelance translator/technical writer/project manager.
Services I provide include translation, editing/proofreading, transcription, website & software localization, project management and technical writing. I am also highly experienced in SEO optimization and keyword research.

As of May 2014 I have been recruited by Moravia IT SA to act as their Language Moderator for the Greek language. This position includes many challenging and exciting duties, such as leading target terminology management, suggesting updates of style guide, analyzing and processing feedback from the translation team and more, all of which allow me to enrich my experience not only in linguistic-related tasks, but people/task management and problem-solving.

My BSc in Electronics and MSc in IT, as well as my professional experience in the IT/Media business from 2004-2008, have provided me with high expertise in modern technologies, product management, understanding high technical concepts, and handling important projects in tights deadlines.

As a linguist, I have had the opportunity to provide my services to agencies all over the world (have worked for more than 80 agencies), handling tasks for some of the biggest companies in the IT, Telecommunications, Electronics, Energy, Travel and Automotive industries.

I am proud to say that I have built strong lasting partnerships with several clients and have made a good name for myself in a business that is very challenging and competitive.
My portfolio displays work carried out for Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Apple, McAfee, Symantec, HTC, Samsung, Volvo, Scania, Opel, GE Energy,, Expedia, Guinot, Sony, Toshiba and more.

I speak Greek (native), English (close to native level), French (very good) and German (good).

I offer highly professional standards in translation services, secured, quality deliveries, and competitive rates. I am naturally self-driven, resourceful, and value all my collaborations. I am an avid user of CAT tools, computers, and search engines. My daily average output ranges between 5.000-7.000 words, as I do this full-time and on a 24/7 basis depending on personal commitments.

Throughout the years of working as a translator I have created and continue to maintain an up-to-date database of translation memories of the highest quality, that help me provide accurate, consistent, and client-specific translations.

Please feel free to contact me should you require any further details.
