Bio
I am a nature lover by heart, a home maker, proud mom of two teens. I am passionate about dogs, gardening, cooking and of course translation.
My journey into the wonderful world of translation starts from Chamba, a quaint little town nestled in the lap of the Himalayas. As a language lover from the beginning, I learnt Sanskrit and Urdu along with English and Hindi at school. During high school, I translated teachers’ lectures into English as English medium books were not available there. I did Masters in Economics, then taught Economics in high school and college for a total of eight years.
My husband’s job brought us to the US eight years back. Being on a dependent visa, I could not work here. So, I spent my time volunteering at kids’ schools and browsing the internet; that’s when I came across Khan Academy. I learned one could volunteer to subtitle the videos on Amara. This brought me to the wonderful world of translation. After using Amara for a while, I realized it was an easy platform to learn and simple to work on. I have subtitled some of Khan Academy’s Economics and Elementary Math videos into Hindi on Amara.
Another milestone in my journey was TED Talks. I started watching Ted videos with my family and loved it! Then I thought about my students, and felt if my kids can gain from these videos, why shouldn’t my students back in India. Thus, I committed to being a volunteer Ted translator so my students could understand. My favorite TED Talk is “Speaking to the heart” by Marleen Laschet.
I volunteered for Translators Without Borders. I helped translate and review 95,000 words for a project on e-cancer about palliative care for patients.
After getting my work permit, I decided to venture into the professional world of translation. Encouraged by my husband and kids, I am now a freelance translator under the name “Anuvaadika”. Subtitling has given me a new lease of life. I am working with a dozen global companies as a translator, reviewer, subtitler and proof reader. But continue my work as volunteer translator.
