Greek Translator and Greek Interpreter

Greek translation in the US dates back to the 20th century.  Greek holds an important part of the culture of many American cities including New York and Chicago.  The history of the Greek language can be traced back to 3rd millennium BC when it was spoken in the Balkan Peninsula. Greek belongs to the Indo-European language family. Your Greek translator should understand this history.

Many words from Greek have found their way into other European languages including US English. Some argue that as many as 8% of the English words have Greek origins.  These words may be found in math, physics, philosophy, astronomy and many other parts of life. Until relatively recently, (the 1960’s) two dialects of Greek existed simultaneously. But in 1976, Dimotika was declared as the official language of Greece. Some of the key grammatical traits include pronoun declension for four cases and a lack of infinitives while other traits are similar to English for example subject verb agreement and articles preceding the noun.  Our Greek translators are able to apply this history to provide an accurate Greek to English translation.

 

In Greek, verbs have synthetic inflection forms for mood, voice, number, person, aspect and tense. Greek has a very extensive vocabulary with many modern inclusions from English. The Greek syllabic structure has complex syllabic onsets but restricted codas. Greek includes stress accent and most vowels can qualify as monothongs.  This technical grammatical information can help our translators provide rapid, accurate Greek translations in Australia.

You Greek translator should understand that the greek alphabet is used for writing and the system consists of 24 alphabets represented in lower and upper or capital cases. The three accents include acute, grave and circumflex. The breathing marks or spiritus asper and spiritus lenis are used to denote the presence of ‘h’ at the beginning of the word.  Get an accurate Greek translation.
