Bio
If you need great Greek>English translations by a 100% native speaker of English, look no further.

My family is English and I was born, raised and educated in the UK (apart from a year studying Greek Literature at the University of Crete). However, I learned the Greek alphabet when I was only 4 and was studying grammar by the time I was 10. I went on to study Greek and French at King's College, London.

I've spent about 3 years in Cyprus, over a year in Crete, and I've been living in Athens since January 2010. That, coupled with my 'early start' at learning Greek, has given me an innate ability to understand the complexities and subtle nuances of the Greek language.

Law and Medicine are my main fields - mainly because that's what most of my current clients want - but I'll turn my hand to almost any translation, and love the opportunity to be more creative with marketing texts.

I'm more than happy to work from scanned pdf files, and even handwritten documents.
