Legend - Part 1
Aa = sounds ALWAYS like "alter"
Bb = sounds ALWAYS like "Violet", "Vase",
Gg = sounds ALWAYS like "WHat", "WHere", "WHy"
Dd = sounds like "THat", THerefore
Ee = sounds like "Egg"
Xx = sounds ALWAYS like "HIstory", "HElp", "HOur"

All kind of "ee's" (Hh, Ii, Yu (or Yy if you prefer) EIei, OIoi) = sounds ALWAYS like "bee", "he", "sea"
All kinf of "oo's" (omikron and omega) = sounds like "ALL", "ALright", "Ok", "Oxygen"

AIai = sounds SOMETIMES like "e" (egg) but SOMETIMES like "a+i" (just the english vowel "I")
EIei = sounds -as I said above- like "bee". But if it happens to have the dis-solvent sign above it (two horizontally dots) then is sounds like "e+i" (egg + bee)
OUou = sounds like "ULtimate", "OOps", "OOlong" (the famous chinese tea). But just like "EIei" above, when it happens to have the dis-solvent sign, sounds like "o+u" (like "oyster")

Legend - Part 2
- Greek language demands an accent sign over the words to know where the accent is
- This accent is called "tonos" (tone... "tone" means "heavy", so in this case we mean "a heavy syllable")
- Words which have less than two syllables do not need the "tonos" sign since the meaning it's obvious
- Red character/syllable represents where the accent is

- - - End of Legend - - -




Meet a Match in Minutes -
Written in Greek: "Βρες το άλλο σου μισό μέσα σε δευτερόλεπτα!"
Written in greek with english characters (greeklish): "Vres to allo sou miso mesa se defterolepta"
Literally means: "Find you other half in seconds". "Seconds" is best suited for the Greek language instead of "minutes". The exclamation mark is mandatory here.


Find a Date Today! -
Written in Greek: "Βρες το ταίρι σου τώρα!"
Written in Greeklish: Vres to tairi sou tora!
Literally means: "Find your pair now". "Pair" (tairi) is the proper word here even though you probably think "a pair of shoes"? or something. Exclamation mark is preferable.


Keep me always logged in -
Written in Greek: "Αυτόματη σύνδεση σε κάθε επίσκεψη"
Written in Greeklish: "Automati syndesi se kathe episkepsi"
Literally means: "Keep me always logged in".


Website -
Written in Greek: "Ιστοσελίδα"
Written in Greeklish: "Istoselida"
Literally means: "Webpage/website"


Chat -
Written in Greek: ...........
Written in Greeklish: .......
Literally means: That Greek language have many words to describe "chat". But the english word "chat" prevailed as a description of talking. You can use "συζήτηση" (plural: συζητήσεις) (greeklish: syzitisi or plural syzitiseis meaning "conversation(s)") but I suggest not to. I recommend "chat".

Dating -
Written in Greek: "Ραντεβού"
Written in Greeklish: "Rantevou"
Literally means: "Dating". From the French word: rendez-vous


Already have an Account -
Written in Greek: "Έχετε ήδη λογαριασμό"
Written in Greeklish: "Ehete idi logariasmo"
Literally means: "(You) already have an account"


Birthdate -
Written in Greek: "Ημερομηνία γέννησης"
Written in Greeklish: "Imerominia gennisis"
Literally means: "The day of your gennesis". "Genesis" is a Greek word which means "The day that life started". Here are some info if you want: (not mandatory) http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=genesis&allowed_in_frame=0


Enter you current location so we can match you to other members close to you -
Written in Greek: "Προσθέστε την τοποθεσία σας για να βρούμε άλλα μέλη κοντά σας"
Written in Greeklish: "Prosthesthe tin topothesia sas gia na vroume alla meli konta sas"
Literally means: "Add/Enter your location to find other members around you".

Secret Admirers -
Written in Greek: "Θαυμαστές"
Written in Greeklish: "thavmastes"
Literally means: "Admirers". The word "secret" has no meaning in Greek language. Just "admirers" is enough.

Flirts -
Written in Greek: "Φλιρτ"
Written in Greeklish: "Flirt"
Literally means: "Flirt". The "flirt" word written with greek characters.



That's it! I believe this will do.
Have a nice day :)
