υποπλοίαρχος -> chief mate (C/M), chief officer, first mate, first officer, senior chief petty officer,  lieutenant commander (LCdr, LCdr., LCDR), lieutenant-commander (LCdr, LCdr., LCDR)

A chief mate (C/M) or chief officer, usually also synonymous with the first mate or first officer, is a licensed mariner and head of the deck department of a merchant ship. The chief mate is customarily a watchstander and is in charge of the ship's cargo and deck crew. The actual title used will vary by ship's employment, by type of ship, by nationality, and by trade: for instance, chief mate is not usually used in the Commonwealth, although chief officer and first mate are; on passenger ships, the first officer may be a separate position from that of the chief officer that is junior to the latter.
