The first choice of International Organisations
International organizations trust ELIT to provide interpreting and translation services.
International experience and recognition
ELIT Language Services is active internationally and based in Athens. We export interpreting and translation services to the European market. Thanks to the excellent quality of our services, we have acquired an enviable position in the European language services arena. A member of the European Language Industry Association.
Translations into native language
ELIT is perhaps the only provider in Greece that strictly observes the golden rule of translation – the native language rule. We thus avoid perilous mistranslations and protect the standing of governments, organisations, and businesses. 100% of the translations provided by ELIT are produced by translators working in their native language.
AIIC/European Union Interpreters
The only verifiable guarantee of quality for an interpreter is membership to the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC) and accreditation by the interpretation service of the European Commission and the European Parliament. These are the only truly certified interpreters in Greece and Europe – because they are the only ones to have successfully passed stringent testing and evaluation by experienced interpreters in terms of their skills and compliance with the AIIC Code of Ethics.
