With GoLocalise you get an experienced and motivated team of professionals that work regularly alongside translation and production companies.

By working with GoLocalise you’ll be able to offer additional services, i.e., voice over, subtitling and translation to your clients, with a partner who will deliver and on whom you can truly rely.
When working with translation companies we provide easy-to-follow guidelines so that you can provide your own translations for us to “convert” into subtitles, or voice over your translated scripts. Or if you prefer, we can take the entire project off your hands and keep things simple for you – it’ your call! We’re equally used to working with production companies, so we can deliver your translations or subtitles in any language and format of your choice – either burning-in the subtitles onto the video for you, or supplying you with XML or PNG files for you to do yourself – Adobe After Effects and Final Cut Pro ready files.

Cypriot Greek (Greek: κυπριακά) is the variety of Modern Greek that is spoken by the majority of the Cypriot populace anddiaspora Greek Cypriots. It is a markedly divergent variety; it differs from Standard Modern Greek in its lexicon, phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax and even pragmatics, not only for historical reasons, but also because of geographical isolation, different settlement patterns, and extensive contact with typologically distinct languages.
Cypriot Greek is not an evolution of the ancient Arcadocypriot dialect, but derives from Byzantine Koine. It has traditionally been placed to the south-eastern group of Modern Greek dialects, along with the dialects of theDodecanese and Chios (with which it shares several phonological phenomena).
Though Cypriot Greek tends to be regarded as a dialect by its speakers, it is unintelligible to speakers of Standard Modern Greek without adequate prior exposure. Greek-speaking Cypriots are diglossic in Cypriot Greek, thevernacular (low variety), and Standard Modern Greek, the high variety. Cypriot Greek is itself a dialect continuumwith an emerging koine. Davy, Ioannou & Panayotou (1996) argue that diglossia has given way to a “post-diglossic [dialectal] continuum […] a quasi-continuous spread of overlapping varieties”.
The contemporary Cypriot lexicon contains “significantly more” words of non-Greek origin when compared to Standard Modern Greek; loanwords in Cypriot come from Old French, Italian, Provençal, Turkish and, increasingly, from English. Additionally, non-Muslim speakers use Muslim Arabic expressions such asμάσ̌σ̌αλλα [ˈmaʃːalːa] “mashallah”, ίσ̌σ̌αλλα [ˈiʃːalːa] “inshallah”, χαλάλιν [xaˈlali(n)] “halali” and χαράμιν [xaˈrami(n)] “harami”,[clarification needed] which have become part of the vocabulary. Ethnologue reports that the lexical similarity between Cypriot Greek and Dimotiki is in the range of 84%–93%.
Cyprus was cut off from the rest of the Greek-speaking world from the 7th to the 10th century AD due to Arab attacks. It was reintegrated in the Byzantine Empire in 962 to be isolated again in 1191 when it fell to the hands of the Crusaders. These periods of isolation led to the development of various linguistic characteristics distinct from Byzantine Greek.
The oldest surviving written works in Cypriot date back to the Medieval period. Some of these are: the legal code of the Kingdom of Cyprus, the Assizes of Jerusalem; the chronicles of Leontios Machairas and Georgios Voustronios; and a collection of sonnets in the manner of Francesco Petrarca. In the past hundred years, the dialect has been used in poetry (with major poets being Vasilis Michaelides and Dimitris Lipertis). It is also traditionally used in folk songs and τσιαττιστά (battle poetry, a form of playing the Dozens) and the tradition ofποιητάρηες (bards).
In the late seventies, Minister of Education Chrysostomos A. Sofianos upgraded the status of Cypriot by introducing it in education. More recently, it has been used in music, e.g. in reggae by Hadji Mike and in rap by several Cypriot hip hop groups, such as Dimiourgoi Neas Antilipsis (DNA). Locally produced television shows, usually comedies or soap operas, make use of the dialect, e.g. “Vourate Geitonoi” (βουράτε instead of τρέξτε) or “Oi Takkoi” (Τάκκος being a uniquely Cypriot name). The 2006 feature film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest features actor Jimmy Roussounis arguing in Cypriot with another crew member speakingGibrizlidja about a captain’s hat they find in the sea. Peter Polycarpou routinely spoke in Cypriot in his role as Chris Theodopolopoudos in the British television comedy series Birds of a Feather.
Today, Cypriot Greek is the only variety of Modern Greek with a significant presence of spontaneous use online, including blogs and internet forums, and there exists a variant of Greeklish that reflects its distinct phonology.
