We met as students at the Ionian University in 2003 and we became fast friends. Our graduate studies did lead us to separate paths, but only for a while; we never lost contact with each other. With our course of studies complete behind us, we joined the workforce: we worked at a number of translation agencies, traveled, acquired working experience and knowledge as full members of the translation community. Our translation journey helped us see the whole picture, to actually grasp what the needs were within the sector we were so passionate about. That is how we decided to become partners; we didn’t just want to set up our own business. We wanted our translation agency to operate under our own terms, ensure that our team members received fair fees, deliver top-quality translations, and pave the way to larger and more significant projects.
