Yannis Nistas

Yannis Nistas is currently a Linguist at Commit, specialized in the fields of IT/Marketing/Software. He spends most of his workday operating his very own translation black box, feeding it with source texts and client requirements on the input side, briefly pushing the T-for-Translation button, then sitting back and relaxing until meaningful translations appear on the output side (...or something like this). When not operating his black box, Yannis may run QA checks, review translations produced by other black boxes, lend a helping hand with Life Sciences projects, or offer backup project management assistance. In his free time, Yannis works out and hits the treadmill at the gym.
