about me

My name is Georgios and I am from Athens. My mother tongue is Greek and I am fluent in English, French, Spanish and Catalan, following 25 years of language studies and having lived in France and Spain for many years. I have two postgraduate degrees – in Translation (Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona) and in Theory of Language (EHEES, Paris) – and a four-year degree in Law (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki). Detailed information can be found on my resume.

greXicon was born out of my long-time passion for languages, creative writing and communication. I always aim for quality and accurate translations, prioritizing the natural flow of speech, avoiding overly complicated sentences, which are often the result of a sterile attachment to the original text. This ensures all translations give the impression of being the original texts while being orthographically and grammatically flawless.

My experience in project management for major translation companies has equipped me with the ability to understand the needs of clients and to efficiently organize every project I undertake.

And all this at fair prices.

in a few words…

I have been working for a number of years as a Greek language translator, and I have mainly dealt with Greek translation, transcreation, editing and proofreading. I always translate to Greek, and more specifically, from English to Greek, from French to Greek, from Spanish to Greek, and from Catalan to Greek.
