All About English to Greek Translation

Are you in search of a talented English to Greek translator to convert your project's message in order to make an impact on your Greek speaking audience? When you need your words translated from one language to another, sourcing an experienced translator is the best way to ensure that your text is translated, localized, and accurately adapted for your Greek language target audience.

Our lineup of English to Greek translators will be able to masterfully propel your brand into the Greek market. While Greek is the oldest of any living Indo European language, with documented writings that date back more than 3,400 years, there are a number of reasons why breaking into the Greek market is a good idea right now.

Greek is the mother tongue of the vast majority of the roughly 10 million people who live in Greece, where Greek serves as the official language. Greek is also the official language of the Republic of Cyprus. Getting your message translated from English into Greek will also help you communicate with Greek speaking audiences in regions of Albania, Italy (primarily in Calabria, in southern Italy), Turkey, and the Ukraine. Populations of Greek speakers can also be found throughout parts of Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, the United States, and in Western Europe. In total, there are an estimated 13 million people worldwide who speak Greek.

In the past, there were two main versions of Greek spoken in Greece. Demotic was used for literature and casual speech, while Katharevousa was the style of language employed in more professional contexts, such as academia, medicine, law, and the armed forces. However, the Greek government declared Demotic Greek the official language of the Greek nation in 1976. Beyond Katharevousa and the Demotic Greek—also known as Standard Modern Greek—vernacular spoken today, other varieties of Modern Greek include Pontic, Cappadocian, Mariupolitan, Southern Italian, Yevanic, and Tsakonian.

Greek is written using the Greek alphabet, which originated from the Phoenician alphabet. You may be interested to learn that the Greek alphabet was one of the first to have its own letters for vowel sounds. One of the key reasons why you'll want to work with a trained English to Greek translator is due to the fact that there isn't an exact correspondence between Greek and English letters. If you want your work to have a professional translation and avoid any amateur translation mistakes, then you're best off working with an experienced English to Greek translator who understands the grammatical details that distinguish one language from the other. For example, Greek question marks resemble the English semicolon. Greek sentences are also commonly longer and more complex than your average English language sentence. For all their differences, however, roughly 12% of the English vocabulary is descended from Greek origins—including most English words beginning with the letters 'ph,' such as philosophy, phobia, and photography.
