My name is Konstantina Drakou and I work as a freelance translator/interpreter (Greek native speaker). In order to expose myself to different terminology and vocabulary fields, I worked for two blue chip multilingual companies (IBM and ExxonMobil) in the UK, spending 10 wonderful years in total outside the geographical boundaries of Greece. Since 2007 , I work as a freelance translator in Leeds, UK. For more information, please visit
