Explanation:
Στα ελληνικά δεν μπορείς να δηλώσεις με τον ίδιο τρόπο την ομορφιά στον άνδρα και τη γυναίκα.Υπάρχει επίσης κι ένας άλλο τρόπος. Μπορείς να πείς: Τί όμορφη που είσαι! ή Τί όμορφος που είσαι!
Καλή συνέχεια στη μετάφρασή σου!

Είσαι πανέμορφη


Explanation:
"Είσαι πανέμορφη" (pronounced: eese panemorfie) is addressed to a woman, whereas you should say "είσαι πανέμορφος" (pronounced eese panemorfos) when talking to a man.
This word actually means "gorgeous", not "beautiful", but that's how it's used in Greek.

HTH,
