Creation of an editorial policy for the publishing, multimedia, and translation departments of the Foundation of the Hellenic World


The Foundation of the Hellenic World in the centre of Athens is dedicated to promoting insights into Hellenistic culture in all its facets. The Foundation’s research team, multimedia, translation, editing, publishing, and events departments, together with its exhibition halls and VR dome, produce print and digital written material in Greek and English. Elizabeth edited many pages for their website and some of their book publications. Subsequently she produced an English Language Editorial Policy to help standardize the outputs of these departments.

Below: A major feature of this style guide was to establish common usage around transliteration of Greek text.


‘Elizabeth’s contribution was extremely significant. It continues to be the model for our work.’
