Bio

To whom it may concern.

I am a native speaker of Greek, English, and Spanish. That is because I was born and raised in Athens, Greece. Which is a very touristy country. And parents send their children to institutes at the same time they send them to school. So by the time we are 14-15 most of us are at least bilingual. And in my case, my mother is Chilean so I learned Spanish thanks to her. My father was a sailor and I would travel a lot with him. And I also have relatives in New Jersey. So I have been there many times. And I learned to speak with an American accent. Ever since I was a young boy I was the unofficial translator and interpreter for family members and friends from a lot of places in Europe and the Americas since I speak multiple languages. One of the favors they would ask me to do was to translate song lyrics.

However, in 2002 until 2006 I worked in Trane Hellas, a Greek air conditioning company, where one of my duties was to translate e-mails from English to Greek and documents from Greek to English. 

However, I am also a teacher of English, Greek, and Spanish, therefore I can also translate texts about education. 

I also enjoy sports, I am knowledgeable about them, so I can translate them too. 

Since I am Greek, I like reading books, and articles about History, especially of Ancient Greece, therefore I can translate that too. 

In 20017 I translated from English to Spanish a document about computers' hardware for the company ExtremeSwitching. 

In a nutshell, I am talented with anything related to languages. And I can translate and interpret in Greek, English, and Spanish. 

Thank you very much for reading these lines. 

Alexandros Ioannis Simitzis Barría.
