Is there anyone from Austria?
I'm from Australia- that's only two extra letters, so they can't be that different!

Χριστος ανέστη εκ νεκρον,
θανάτο θάνατον πατήσας,
και τους εν τους μνήμασι,
ζωὴν χαρισάμενος!

HristOs aNEsti ek nekrON
ThaNAto ThanatON patIsas
Kai tis en tis MNImasi
zoIN harisAmenos

Christ is Risen from the dead
Trampling down death by death
And on those in the tombs
Bestowing life!


Αξιον εστίν ως αληθώς
μακαρίζειν σε την Θεοτόκον,
την αειμακάριστον και παναμώμητον
και μητέρα του Θεού ημών.
Την τιμιωτέραν των Χερουβείμ και
ενδοξοτέραν ασυγκρίτως των Σεραφείμ
την αδιαφθόρως Θεόν Λόγον τεκούσαν,
την όντως Θεοτόκον, Σε μεγαλύνομεν


Axion estIN os aliTHOS
MakaRIzien se tin TheoTOkon
tin ayimaKAriston kai panaMOmiton
kai miTEra tou theOU imON
Tin timioTEran ton heruVIM
kai endoksoTEran asinGRItos ton seraFIM
tin adifthORos, theON logON tekOUsan
tin ONtos theoTOkon, se megaLInomen.


Truly you are worthy
to be blessed Theotokos (God-birther)!
You the holy-blessed  and Ever blameless One,
And Mother of our God!
More honourable than the Cherubim,
And more glorious than the Seraphim!
Without stain, you gave birth to the Logos (Word)!
The True Theotokos (God-birther), we magnify you!

May I disagree with only one minor point in the transliteration?  At the beginning of Axion estin, the "A" in Axion should be emphasized.

Axion estIN
