Katerini Translation Centre


Certified translations





Katerini Translation Centre was established in 1996 in Katerini, Greece. It specialises in translations in Greek, English and German, and provides official, certified translations in a range of languages, which are recognised by public authorities and private agencies both in Greece and abroad.



Its founder, Konstantinos Christoforidis, armed with great eagerness and a keen sense of responsibility, was driven by his vision to cover the market’s need for quality translation services. Having graduated from the Ionian University’s Department of Foreign Languages, Translation and Interpreting, he obtained the title of official translator and became a member of the Panhellenic Association of Professional Translators, Graduates of the Ionian University (PEEMPIP).
His great love of languages led him to the UK (University of Oxford), Germany (Universität Heidelberg and Universität Kassel) and Spain (CILE, Malaga).



At the Katerini Translation Centre, every translation is sealed with professionalism and clarity, as are all our relationships with our clients.



Our translations are defined by accuracy, clarity of expression and reliability. In order to achieve this, we work with a large number of professional translators who translate exclusively into their native languages and are experienced in their respective fields of expertise.



We make a point of sticking to deadlines, respecting our clients’ demands and strictly observing our privacy policy. We fully comply with the principles of confidentiality and take all measures to protect our associates’ personal data.

Πέντε αστέρια τα τελευταία σχεδόν 25 χρόνια! Δεν το αλλάζω με τίποτα γιατί δεν έχω βρει καλύτερο, αλλά ούτε και ισάξιο. Έχω χρειαστεί μεταφράσεις κατά την παραμονή μου στο εξωτερικό αλλά και εδώ στην Αθήνα που διαμένω και τις είχα όλες είτε αυθημερόν, είτε την επομένη. Όλη η διαδικασία ολοκληρώνεται με email, μέσα κοινωνικής δικτύωσής ή courier χωρίς να είναι απαραίτητη η φυσική παρουσία. Έχω παραλάβει άψογες μεταφράσεις στα Γερμανικά και Αγγλικά με άριστη γνώση ορολογίας δημόσιας διοίκησης. Ευγένεια, ήθος, ειλικρίνεια και απλότητα σε κάθε επικοινωνία. Και οι πιο οικονομικές τιμές που έχω βρει. Μπράβο και πάλι μπράβο!

Χρησιμοποιώ τις υπηρεσίες του γραφείου για μεταφράσεις από και προς Γερμανικά 20 χρόνια και πλέον. Αυτό από μόνο του τα λέει όλα. Άριστη εξυπηρέτηση σε όλα τα στάδια της διαδικασίας, αξιοπιστία, υψηλότατη ποιότητα και επαγγελματισμός. Το συνιστώ ανεπιφύλακτα!

Εξαιρετικό γραφείο. Αν θέλεις να κάνεις τη δουλειά σου σωστά και επαγγελματικά, τότε είναι μονόδρομος. Οι άνθρωποι είναι ευγενέστατοι και πολύ καταρτισμένοι, ο χώρος είναι φανταστικός και αμέσως καταλαβαίνεις ότι πρόκειται για σοβαρούς ανθρώπους. Ταχύτατη εξυπηρέτηση. Ευχαριστώ.

Άμεση εξυπηρέτηση και επαγγελματισμός, απόλυτα ικανοποιημένη!

Very professional service, quick, accurate and reasonable prices. I will definitely prefer them again!

The rate for each translation is determined by the language pair, the type of text, the deadline and the overall volume of the project.

You can request a quote, with no obligation on your part, simply by sending the text you wish to be translated to We ask for your understanding that we do not accept documents that have been photographed or scanned using a mobile phone but only using a scanner. You will soon receive our financial offer, which will include information on the price, deadline and payment method.

You can pick up your translation in person or we can send it to you by email or courier.

The high standard of our translation services is enough to seal the deal and lay the foundation for a trustworthy and comprehensive collaboration.


What does a translation cost?

The cost of a translation depends on the type of text, its wordcount and the due date. You can send us the text to be translated via our form or via e-mail at, and we will send you a quote with respect to cost and time required.

Can you provide a translation in electronic format?

Certainly! This can take place in either of two ways:

1) If the recipient accepts translations in electronic format, you can send us the text to be translated in scanned form (please use a scanner, not a mobile telephone camera). We will prepare the translation, certify it and send it back to you electronically. Payment can take place through e-banking or a bank deposit.
2) If the recipient does not accept translations in electronic format and requires the submission of an original translation in hard copy, you can send us the text to be translated in scanned form (please use a scanner, not a mobile telephone camera). Once the translation is ready, you will have to bring the original document in hard copy to our office in order to be appended to the translation and certified. In this case, payment can take place in cash or using a debit/credit card.

Will State services accept your translations?

Our translations are official. They are certified by Konstantinos Christoforidis as an official translator and graduate of the Ionian University, and are accepted by most State services in Greece and abroad. In the rare occasion where certification by an attorney is required, we work with an attorney to meet this need. We remain at your disposal to clarify any relevant issues.

What is the Apostille (Hague Stamp), and when is it needed?

The Apostille is a stamp whereby a government service certifies the authenticity of a document in order for it to be accepted as valid by a foreign state. It is placed on original State documents or exact copies by the Authority issuing them.
Before engaging us for a translation, you must contact the service that will be receiving the document whether this stamp is required. If it is, you must ensure that it is placed on the original document before engaging us for the translation. When translating your document, we will also translate the Apostille.

How can I pay for translations?

You can pay for your translations in person at our office either in cash or using a debit/credit card. If you engage us to work exclusively through electronic means, you can pay us via bank deposit.

Do you provide interpretation services?

Our office does not provide interpretation services.
