Is this someone you've been looking for?

Every project is different and I'm afraid there is no such thing as a "one-fits-all" translation rate. There are literally dozens of factors that affect translation rates: the complexity of your source text, file format (hand-written and non-editable electronic documents tend to be much more expensive), how fast you want it back, your budget expectations, etc. Please, contact me and I'll be happy to give you an exact quote by providing all relevant info required, so that I can then send you the quote through a Translation Services Provision Order. Thank you in advance!

My biography and experience

I am an Official Translator with a keen interest in translation of legal and economic texts, having acquired a substantial knowledge on such subjects during my studies. For 5 years, I've been working as a translator, providing quality results to my colleagues and clients.

When I'm not on the job, I try to stay in the loop of all the latest developments in the translation field, reading relevant articles and literature, connecting with fellow colleagues and coming in contact with people sharing my interests. Moreover, content writing has become my interest, in particular producing texts for tourist destinations in Greece and abroad and blogging on topics regarding translation.
