I was interviewed by Dr. Tim Altanero of Austin Community College, Texas, for my views on translating airline menus. His article, featuring my quotes, has been published in Multilingual Computing and Technology at www.multilingual.com Issue #76.
I also teach translation.
size=5> I work as an Assistant Professor at a University in New Delhi, India, where I also teach a special course on Translation.
The course is aimed at existing students of the University. It is called Certificate Course in Translation Proficiency. I have been actively involved in framing teaching materials for the course as well as in teaching it since the academic session 2004-2005.
The focus of the course is bi-directional English<>Hindi [Hindustani/Urdu]. But we have a student this year, 2005-2006, who has completed Advanced Diploma in French and works as a translator. I tell my students that though the focus of the course is English<>Hindi for the purpose of convenience, students would be able to apply the skills learnt elsewhere in their lives.

***If you would like to work with me and respect me for my ability, I would be glad to work with you and we can work out a price that is not too high for you and which is respectable for a competent professional.
The place you see is Porto Santo Stefano, Tuscany, Italy. I was there to participate in the First Annual ProZ.com Convention in 2001. The sea is really tranquil. The only regret is that the Convention lasted a mere two days and gave me no time to explore the beach.
In-flight menus, food terms, wines, cheese. Medicine,medical consent forms, research trials of drugs, patient questionnaires,research papers. Diseases:AIDS, cancer, prostate cancer,
malaria,osteoporosis, diabetes. Journalism,
news reports, editorials, news websites. Literature,short stories, poetry. Social sector, housing, school surveys, ethnic background. Glossary,financial terms etc.
The fact that this picture is there does not only mean that I possess a profound interest in Western Classical music. It also means that I am a virtuoso like the great Mozart when it comes to translating a file. You will find the same fluency in translation.
If you wish to work with me, you will soon realize that it will be fun. I believe in the highest possible quality standards and try to ensure a very smooth workflow.
