Who I am

My name is Effie Emmanouilidou and I am a professional English to Greek translator.

With many years of training behind me and hands-on experience working as a professional translator in my native languages, I possess total comprehension of the issues that occur during all translation projects.

A bit more about me . . .


I have a B.A. in English Studies (1995-1999) from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and a diploma from the European Educational Group for Translation and Interpretation (1999-2001).
Committed to Continuing Professional Development (CPD), I regularly attend online courses, webinars and conferences in the translation field.
You can see a list of my CPD here.

Work experience:

I began my career working as an in-house translator for two agencies (Intertranslations and Orco). Since 2002, I have been working as a freelance translator. Used to working with many types of texts, my favored field of study is the technical and medical field. Enjoying in-depth research, I also enjoy the fact that my role in translating allows me to continually learn about new technologies and developments in these fields.

A few personal facts:

Born and raised in Greece by a Greek father and a Puerto-Rican/New Yorker mother, I have been involved in translating since 2001. Raised bilingual and with a native knowledge of both languages, I am able to understand the nuances of English that a non-native speaker would possibly struggle with, being able to translate accurately into Greek.

CAT tools:

I am an experienced user of memoQ 8.7, SDL Trados Studio 2017 and SDL Trados 2007. I can also work with Smartling (CAT Tool Certification, May 2017 ) and Memsource if required.

Effie is one of the best Greek translators I have ever worked with. She is thorough, professional, reliable and always punctual. She delivers quality work, and it’s always a pleasure working with her.
