Client testimonials:

"Georgios did an excellent job translating our mobile app. It is an
adventure game and has a large amount of creative writing...so it was
not an easy challenge. He was so nice and very responsive to questions
and concerns, and worked fast to meet our deadline. Would HIGHLY
recommend!! Thanks Georgios, we look forward to working together again."

- Fire Maple Games


"Georgios led our team of linguists on a large website localization project
for HomeAway.com. He was also our editor for Greek and the linguistic tester.

Throughout the months-long project, he exhibited clear and responsive
communication, a flexible and upbeat attitude, and a complete dedication
to getting the job done with linguistic integrity. He consistently
displayed intimate knowledge of the language requirements, our CAT tool,
bug reporting thought JIRA, and long-term goals of our client. I felt
confident in his decision-making and putting him in touch directly with
the client. [...] I heartily look forward to our next opportunity to
work together!"

- Alexis, Project Manager


"Very
helpful implementing a Greek translation into my app, Streaks. Was very
meticulous with his translations and then reviewing the work in context
and ensuring everything looked good and made sense. Will use again in
future."

- Crunchy Bagel, creator of Streaks App


And a few others:

"He did an accurate and highly recommended work! If you focus on quality, you're in good hands."

"Incredibly
fast and articulate at the same time. Many questions were asked to be
accurate and precise. Would definitely re-order!"

"Serious and good translator. Very good work for My Football Center app. Thanks!"

CAT/localization tools: SDL Studio Trados (all versions), MemoQ

Deja V X, Wordfast, Microsoft LEAF/Fabric, Microsoft Localization Studio

Education & training:

* Holder of the Diploma in Translation from the Chartered Institute of
Linguists, London.


* Studied Translation at the post-graduate level in Cardiff University's
department of European Studies. Exceptional independent researcher,
trained in the use of CAT-tools and focusing on expressive and technical
translations.

of Piraeus and professional experience in various positions in the
service and sales sector.

My passion for computers and video games began before I could write, and
now I am a power user of both desktop and mobile devices, in close
contact with online communities and familiar with a wide range of
software.

I also try to be conscious about global issues such as
environmentalism and social justice, which often require thorough
research to fully comprehend.



I perceive translation quality and catering to the client's needs as
matters of personal integrity, and this is how I approach every assigned
task. Feel free to contact me for any clarifications or questions on
the ways that I can help you.

Thank you for reading,
Georgios
