Ήδη με το παρόν συμφωνητικό συμφωνείται μεταξύ των εδώ συμβαλλομένων ότι η Εταιρεία θα λαμβάνει από την XXX τις παρακάτω υπηρεσίες:

Υπηρεσίες που αφορούν στην κατάταξη πελατών ανάλογα με την πιστοληπτική τους ικανότητα, προκειμένου η Εταιρεία να είναι σε θέση να σταθμίσει την φερεγγυότητα των υποψήφιων πελατών της, όπως περιγράφονται στο Προσάρτημα Α του παρόντος. Συμφωνείται δε ρητά ότι το προϊόν των παρεχόμενων υπηρεσιών της XXX θα συνίσταται μόνο στην παροχή της εκτίμησής της, βάσει πληροφοριών που είναι διαθέσιμές σε αυτήν για την πιστοληπτική ικανότητα τρίτου προσώπου (φυσικού ή νομικού). Ορίζεται ωστόσο ότι ουδεμία υποχρέωση έχει αυτή να ανακοινώνει ή με οποιονδήποτε τρόπο γνωστοποιεί στην Εταιρεία τα στοιχεία στα οποία βασίζεται για να διαμορφώσει την εκάστοτε εκτίμησή της.
Translation - English
With this agreement, the two contracting parties above agree that the Company shall receive from XXX the following services:

Services regarding the categorization of clients based on their credit ratings, so that the Company can be in a position to estimate the solvency of its possible clients, as described in Appendix Α of this agreement. It is also explicitly agreed that the product of the services rendered by XXX shall only consist in the provision of its estimate, on the basis of information available to it regarding the credit rating of a third party (either a natural person or a legal entity). It is however clarified that XXX has absolutely no obligation to make public or in any way communicate to the Company the data on which it relies to form any opinions.

Compulsive-obsessive disorder: An initial dose of 20mg (1 tablet) per day is recommended. The dose can gradually be increased by 20mg and up to 60mg (3 tablets) a day, if this is deemed necessary over the clinical evaluation. Elderly patients of over 65 should use half the recommended dose.
English to Greek: wine
Source text - English
Chardonnay wines tend to be quite full-bodied, with a weighty, creamy texture. The best Chardonnays age well, developing honeyed nutty, savoury complexity.
Translation - Greek
Οι οίνοι Chardonnay τείνουν να έχουν πολύ γεμάτο σώμα, με βαριά, κρεμώδη υφή. Τα καλύτερα Chardonnay παλαιώνουν ωραία, διαμορφώνοντας μια πικάντικη πολυπλοκότητα μελωμένων ξηρών καρπών.

CV/Resume CV available upon request
All I can say is I love translating, and feel very lucky to be doing something I love, regardless of the time and effort it has taken me to study translation and interpreting the way I wanted. I get bored easily, so I don't see how I could have survived a job lacking all these constant challenges and new things to learn.

In addition to the portfolio and CV provided above, a more extensive portfolio, as well as references to support my CV, are available upon request.

To help bolster your confidence in my work, I would also like to mention that, in a spring 2005 competition by the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs seeking to employ two translators for the English language -from English into Greek and vice versa-, I came third [9.33 / 10] out of 1747 participants. You might like to have this verified by a Greek-speaking colleague - the link to the Ministry’s detailed results tables is Individual grades in descending order can be found at, a Greek portal for translation, at,502.0/prev_next,prev.html.
