Experienced literary translator from German/English to Greek.

In some cases,, English or German can be my target languages as well.
Raised in a multicultural environment and trained in translation through my academic years, languages were always in my life. As a translator, i try not only to translate just words, but the whole cultural meaning that surrounds them, creating texts with semantic and linguistic coherence. I will translate texts of art, culture, philosophy, sociology, literature and social sciences, as well as general texts, from French and English to Greek. :)
My passion for languages and intercultural communication led me to study at the Department of Foreign Languages, Translation and Interpreting of the Ionian University (Corfu, Greece) as an aspiring translator. My internship at a translation agency in Thessaloniki, Greece, helped me gain experience in various translation issues and be more professional. Nowadays, already holding my academic degree in Translation, I translate a variety of different types of texts from English and French into my mother tongue, that is Greek --and vice versa, if needed-- both for translation agencies and for individual clients.
