Greek translation: Interesting facts
Until recently, two languages were spoken in Greece: Demotic Greek, the everyday, popular language, and Katharevousa, a more academic, “pure” version. The latter was the country’s official language until 1976, when it was finally replaced by the popular language. Until then, the linguistic dichotomy to which the Greeks were subjected caused a long dispute over which of the two languages should be recognized as official. The question was finally resolved with the adoption of Demotic Greek.
Although Demotic Greek is a simplified version of the Greek language compared to Katharevousa, which was based on Ancient Greek, Modern Greek remains a challenging language to deal with: the non-Latin alphabet and grammatical complexity are just two of the reasons why it is best to rely on experienced, qualified Greek translators.
Business tips for Greece
Greeks are very superstitious. Don’t be surprised if during a meeting someone makes the gesture of spitting three times (obviously symbolically, only making the sound): it is intended to ward off bad luck and is used when someone hears some bad news.
Also, if you don’t want your meeting to turn into a tragedy, be absolutely sure to avoid showing the open palm of your hand, as though signalling the number 5. This gesture, known as the “mountza”, is considered a real insult and is even often perceived as a threat, since the Greeks associate it with a curse.
