About me
I am an English ↔ Greek Medical-Technical freelance translator with over 10 years of experience. I am a native speaker of Greek and, having been born and raised in the United States until the age of ten, I am also
a near-native speaker of English.


I hold a BSc. in Biology from the University of Patras, Greece and a MSc. in Food Microbiology and Biotechnology, of which I completed one semester and my dissertation in the University of Ulster, Northern Ireland. Currently, I am attending a professional translation course which I will complete in the summer of 2014. This is something that I always wanted to accomplish but never had the time due to an increased work load from my in-house translation work. However, now that I am working exclusively as a freelancer I am happy that I was able to fit it in my schedule.

My work experience as a laboratory analyst in the biochemical and immunology department for four years, as well as my past experience as a tutor of English and Biology has helped me in my work as a medical-technical translator. My medical translation experience includes SPCs, PILs, ICFs, Clinical Protocols, Consent Forms, Manuals, Patient Questionnaires, Medical Reports and my technical translation experience includes manuals of various household appliances, machinery, electric tools, stereo systems, TVs, air-conditioners, etc.

Besides medical-technical translations, I also have extensive experience in the following areas: Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry (Material Data Sheets), Environment, Certificates, Cosmetics & Beauty, Patents, Quality Assurance, Sports & Leisure, Subtitles, Tourism & Travel, Websites and other general topics.

Please contact me for a quote on your translation projects. I would be happy to serve you!
