About the Greek: what is important in every translation

The Greek language dates back to 1900 BC. ch. and in that period it consisted of Ionic-Attic, Doric, and Aeolian Greek. In addition, Macedonian was still part of the language. The first known writing system in Greek was written between 1450 and 1250 BC. ch. and the language used was called Mycenaean. The Greek alphabet contains 24 characters. When Alexander the Great made his conquests, Koiné Greek became the world language. Old dialects disappeared and were generalized into the language used at the time. Even Roman conquerors spoke Koiné Greek to show how much cultural baggage they had and the Bible was rewritten in this language to make it easier to distribute worldwide. Middle Greek, also called Byzantine Greek, became the successor and eventually evolved into Modern Greek, which is relatively young. In 1830, when the Ottoman occupation ended, all Ottoman influences were removed and a more original version of the language was returned. As many as 99% of the Greek population has Greek as their mother tongue. The remaining 1% speak Turkish, Bulgarian, Albanian, Romani, Slav-Macedonian and here and there some English or French. Today, Greek is the official language of Greece and Cyprus. If you want to translate a document from or into Greek, please examine the following elements:

What Greek dialects are there?

Greek has several dialects. Each dialect is associated with a particular region, although there are no shocking differences in the language when you look at the various dialects. Whether you have to take a dialect into account depends on the purpose of your translation.

Know the purpose of the translation

What is the purpose of your translation? Do you want to translate certain medical documents or do you need a translation for your stay in Greece or Cyprus? What is the purpose of the translation? Suppose you want to translate certain documents for a holiday to Greece or Cyprus, think in advance which documents are mandatory and which obligations they must meet. If it concerns official documents, choose a sworn translation. If you use the translation for your website or a local advertisement, for example, first assess who will read the translation.

Are you going to Greece or do you just need a Greek translation?

What do you want to achieve with your translation? Are you traveling to Greece or Cyprus or do you want to reach a Greek-speaking target group from the Netherlands? In short, what is your goal? When it comes to a text or document that you want to use in Greece or Cyrpsu, in most cases you can have a standard Greek translation made. Nevertheless, it is wise to be clear which dialect is used in the region where the recipient is located. The various dialects are: Tsakonian (about 1200 speakers), Cappadocian (threatened with extinction), Cretan Greek (about 500,000 speakers including the inhabitants of Crete), Maniot (about 100,000 speakers), Pontic Greek (about 500,000 speakers), Yevanic -Greek (threatened with extinction). Despite some minority dialects or dialects that do not differ much from Standard Greek, it is advisable to take this into account. You avoid misunderstandings because a native speaker translator makes the right translation in the right dialect.

Explore the culture of Greece and Cyprus

Each country has its own culture, history, customs and habits. Greece is of course all history, from the gods to the origin of the Olympic Games. Take advantage of this knowledge when you communicate with people from Greece or Cyprus or go to one of these countries yourself, it shows that you are well prepared. The kafeneion, or cafe, is a place where many Greek men can be found on a daily basis. Ze drinken snel een kop koffie en wisselen de laatste nieuwtjes uit. It is also a networking place, where you can, for example, make an appointment with the local plumber or another person who provides services. Women are allowed to enter, but it is customary that mainly men are present. The color of the kafeneion indicates the political preference of the visitors: blue for conservatives and green for the socialists. If you are invited to a Greek home, bring a present. Chocolate, cake or flowers are suitable for this. If you give a gift for a birthday or a name day, don’t be surprised if it is not unpacked immediately. Greeks do not unwrap gifts until the guests have returned home, out of courtesy and to show that they are paying attention to the visitors rather than the gifts they have brought.
A heartfelt kalimera (good morning) is allowed until 1 pm. Then say kalispera (daytime) and kalinichta (good night) at bedtime.
Greeks kiss each other profusely at greetings, both men and women, which is accompanied by a handshake. There is only no kissing on the day before Good Friday, because Judas kissed Jesus as a sign of betrayal. Greeks come closer to each other than Western Europeans are used to. They are very physical, easily putting a hand on someone else’s shoulder and even pulling your arm when they think the conversation is waning. It’s not an intrusiveness, just a habit. They do not have the habit of smiling during a conversation, this is experienced as stupid. Eye contact is not used much during conversations, people look in all directions except into other people’s eyes. As in Bulgaria and certain other areas, shaking the head is meant to mean ‘yes’ and nodding means ‘no’. The word ‘né’ means yes and a so-called ‘oxi’ means no. They then nod and make a tsss sound. The topics of conversation are diverse, Greeks talk about everything. Just stick to the rule that criticism is not welcome. Dit is beledigend en wanneer men beledigd is, wordt het moeilijk om de relatie weer goed te krijgen. An important part of social culture is good manners. They make an effort to look beautiful. When you visit a public building or a church or monastery, make sure you look well-groomed. Bare shoulders and knees are not desired here, for both men and women. Never disturb a Greek’s afternoon nap, this is absolutely not done. On the other hand, it is no problem if someone calls them late at night. In that respect the Greeks deal with time differently; a terrace is just as full during the week as it is at the weekend. Greeks are proud people who value their culture and way of interacting with each other. If you stick to the customs, friction will not quickly arise.

Choose a translator who knows Greek and its culture

Choose a translator who knows both the language and the country. By having a native speaker translator translate your document, we guarantee you a translation that always serves its purpose. Whether it concerns an official document or reaching a specific target group, you benefit from the guarantee that it is done properly.
