It is now official: KUDO has signed up a new studio in Europe, in the heart of Athens. Owned and operated by Haris Ghinos, of ELIT Language Services, the new hub harnesses the vibrant energy of one of the world’s most significant cultures.
ELIT Language Services is the largest provider of conference interpreting services in Greece. It specializes in high-end language services and caters to the most demanding segments of the European market.
Founded in 2008, the company is a preferred provider of international organizations like the European Commission, the United Nations, the IMF, and others. It also enjoys the trust of the Greek government, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Presidency of the Republic and the Hellenic Parliament. ELIT is ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 17100:2015 certified.
One of the most antique Indo-European languages, Greek is often thought of by non-native speakers as a cryptic lingo far removed from common daily exchanges. But contrary to popular belief, Greek permeates a huge part of the dialogue in Western democracies and has greatly influenced their architecture, philosophy, even their economies. As a matter of fact, all the italicized words in this paragraph –and the concepts they convey– are Greek in origin.
The Greek influence also pervades our collective unconscious, through the enrapturing tales of gods and goddesses of great power and hidden vulnerabilities, from the golden touch of King Midas to the weak heel of Achilles.
KUDO’s new hub in Athens taps deep into that figurative and literal wealth, both cultural and economic. It enlists the richness of the beautiful Greek language as a conduit for further understanding, at the crossroads of East and West. It opens another window into the world, for KUDO, ELIT, their customers and interpreters, so the sun can pour in.
