METAFRASI


Explanation:
Hello,
the Greek word for "translation" is "metafrasi" (accent on the first 'a', and the 's' pronounced as 's' not as 'z'). In Greek fonts (if readable): μετάφραση.
The plural is "metafrasis" (accent this time on the second 'a'). In Greek fonts: μεταφράσεις.
Gendre of the word: (F)
Have a nice day,
