Bio

My passions are translating the world and breaking the barriers in communication. Being always a reliable and trusted translator, I have a proven ability to translate written documents from English and German into Greek and vice versa. As a recent graduate, I am full of enthusiasm, looking for ways to offer my language services either professionally or voluntarily having delivered more than 300.000 words. My ability to adapt to multicultural environments and to challenges when they arise, in combination with my strong academic background, makes me remain aware of professional roles and boundaries. I would like to work as a translator and/or quality assurance specialist for successful and ambitious companies that offer great opportunities for career development and progression.
