Bio

I am bilingual and a native speaker of both English and Greek.

Regarding my linguistic educational background, I have attained the Diploma in Translation of Greek into English from the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL) as well as a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate. Apart from the above, my studies include a Bachelor's degree in Economics, a Master's degree in Financial Markets and Derivatives and a Politics, Philosophy and Economics Bachelor's degree at the UK Open University.

With regard to my work experience, I now have more than 9 years of experience in translating and 5 years of experience in teaching English and Greek as foreign languages. In the past few years I have been working both as a Freelance Translator and as a Translations Project Manager for an agency in Greece (KOSMOS Languages). Some of my major recent clients are AKMI Metropolitan College (mainly academic papers and dissertations of a Medical, Business and Tourism nature), Google (diverse material), VICE News for HBO (subtitling Documentaries / Current affairs material), Nordisk Undertext (Subtitle Origination & Quality Control) and Vocabridge (articles on Economics / Business - including several documents from / to European Union bodies).

Average daily translating output: 3,000 source words.

CAT software: SDL Trados 2015. Also experienced in Matecat & MemoQ.
