I am a speaker of a number of European languages (with English and Greek being my primary forms of communication) and I am therefore familiar and extremely confident in expressing the linguistic terminology or parts of speech in a variety of subject areas like:
Government administrative departments
Personal letter translation
The writing of documents
The editing /proof reading of documents/essays/articles
Please note, in my training of Modern Greek at university, I received formal instruction and have developed an excellent understanding of all aspects specifically relating to Greek grammar including translating and interpreting as a significant component of this particular course designed for native spreakers of Greek. This is so that my prospects of establishing a career specifically in translating are excellent. In having completed a major and a teaching method in this language I also have the relevant skills both through my formal education at tertiary level and a number of years of practical experience in this specific area.
I have as well excellent creative writing skills that have been further developed over thirteen years to further enhance my writing style that I would like to share in composing literary work for professional, potential clients. I also have extensive expertise in editing both through my work in the classroom over a number of years. I have since considerable experience in editing both senior high school and university standard essays based locally and overseas across a number of subject areas for professional clients in my private service of six highly successful years.
Area Covered: I work both within my local area as well as a freelance employee
