Removing the irrelevant packages, here's a working solution: \documentclass[paper=a4,fontsize=11pt]{scrartcl} % KOMA-article class \usepackage[english,greek]{babel} \usepackage[iso-8859-7]{inputenc} \usepackage{kerkis} \frenchspacing \newcommand{\NewPart}[1]{\section*{\MakeUppercase{#1}}} \begin{document} \NewPart{Personal details} ...
