I was born in in Atalanti, Greece. This is where I grew up and received my primary and secondary education.

In , I graduated from the Ionian University, Corfu, with a degree in Translation. As part of my undergraduate studies, I spent a semester abroad as a visiting student at the University of Manchester.

In , I was awarded a Master's degree in Applied Linguistics from the University of Athens.

Since , I have been working as a freelance translator and translation reviser/editor. My commitment to high quality and my dedication to excellence have earned me a constantly expanding, prestigious client base. Most of my clients are based in Europe, the United States and Canada.

From to I worked as a research assistant at the Research Centre for Language Teaching, Testing and Assessment (RCeL) of the University of Athens.

From to I worked as a Customer Documentation Specialist at Nokia Networks.

Now I work exclusively as a freelance translator, translation editor, translation quality auditor and terminologist. I am a member of the Mediterranean Editors and Translators association of language service providers and of the Hellenic Society for Terminology (ELETO).

Career goals

My current career goals are the following:

  • Participate in high-profile, prestigious translation/localisation projects.
  • Contribute to the creation of better Greek terminology in my fields of expertise.
  • Conduct research that will help to map out the lexicogrammatical resources of Greek.

Values

In my personal and professional life I strive to abide by a code of ethics; to behave according to a set of values which I appreciate. Here are the most important ones: integrity, honesty, excellence, conscientiousness, diligence, dignity, empathy.

Interests

My main interest is programming, especially on the Microsoft desktop and Web stacks: C#, .NET, ASP.NET, SQL Server. I am also familiar with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery. An example of what I have managed so far in this field is the web site you are currently browsing: I have built it myself from scratch, without using any templates or code snippets copied from elsewhere.

Other interests of mine are digital photography and photo editing, music making and, well... cooking. (No samples of my performance in this last one, though!)
