My name is Ioannis Lachanis and I am a native Greek linguist living in Edinburgh, UK. I have been providing my services on a full-time, self-employed basis since 2007. My main areas of expertise is the technical field, covering the entire spectrum from IT, electronics and telecommunication, to automotive, energy, mechanical and medical devices.

Taking advantage of my academic years (BSc in Electronics, MSc in IT) and early professional career (IT specialist/consultant), and a deep love for languages, I am proud to say that I have managed to create a vast network of partnerships worldwide, having worked with more than 100 agencies, and having built several long standing work relations.

The languages I speak are Greek (native), English (native level), French (advanced level) and German (basic level), but my work focuses on English to Greek and French to Greek.

As a professional linguist I am offering services that involve translation, editing, proofreading, MTPE, transcriptions, transcreation, subtitling, SEO, project management, and more.

I have provided work for some of the biggest global companies, like Microsoft, Apple, Yahoo, Google, HP, Samsung, Dell, Oracle, McAfee, Symantec, HTC, Volvo, Scania, Opel, GE Energy, Sony, Toshiba, Epson,, Expedia and others.

I value a highly professional work ethic, implementing strong professional standards, and I offer secured, quality deliveries, and competitive rates. I am naturally self-driven, resourceful, and take pride in all my collaborations.

I am an avid user of CAT tools, computers, and search engines, quick to learn and adapt to new systems and changes. I am ambitious and always search for new ways to grow as a professional, and as a person.

Thank you for checking out my profile and please leave me a message if you want more details on the services I offer.
