Voice, Writer, Translator English-Greek

Greece - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 3 - Portfolio: 3

Over the last 15 years I deal with science as well as art. I am from Greece. I have studied Engineering Geology at Imperial College so my English is fluent enough to translate or write an article. I have also obtained the Certificate of Proficiency in English - both Cambridge and Michigan! I also speak French and I have obtained the "Certificat de la langue Francaise", thus I can easily translate from French to Greek. I have taken several courses in writing. I can write an article for science or art, as I have an expanded knowledge of both. I also travel a lot every year in many places, so writing a travel-article is very easy for me, as I have visited many places (all Europe, USA, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Mexico, China, Egypt, Dubai, Jordan, Syria, Israel, Turkey) and I know what information to provide tourists with. As an actress I have a very nice voice, unique for recording an article or script in English, French and Greek. I also have a Diploma in playing the Piano, so I can compose music.
