Bio
ProZ.com community choice awards 2014 Certified PROs.jpg

For the last 19 years I have been cooperating with translation agencies, advertising companies, institutes and publishing houses worldwide. A rough estimate of the words that I have translated so far is 13,000,000 and the respective number for proofreading is 5,000,000. I can translate 2,500-3,500 words per day and proofread 5,000-7,000 words respectively.

I founded Lingua Greca Translations with my partner Christos Floros in March 2012. Our boutique translation agency focuses on IT, Medical and Gambling texts. You can visit my website for more details and samples of my work.

I am active in social media (especially Twitter, @LinguaGreca) and I write a blog called Adventures in Technical Translation.
