Bio
Practical experience to supplement areas of specialization and the consistent use of standards
Areas of specialization


I am deeply interested in law and legal systems, with practical experience in the legal domain including drafting and conducting trials as a litigant in person. Professionally, I am a software engineer from the Ohio State University, OH USA, and an electrical engineer from the Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai, India with 15 years of experience, 5 on Wall Street in the areas of credit rating and corporate governance. '

This gives me a firm grounding in translations in the following domains:

- Law, Contracts and agreements, Patents
- Information Technology and embedded/hardware systems
- Data security and software engineering
- Business, Finance and Economics, Corporate Annual Reports
- Electronics and telecommunications
- Technical, Scientific and Engineering

Workflow and Standards


I bring a rigorous approach to bear in the translation business by strict adherence to DIN EN 13058 standards and an efficient workflow that leverages CAT tools and best translation practices including robust QA processes and streamlined terminology management. This is in keeping with my engineering background. As an engineer, I worked to rigorous specifications in the development and implementation of complex software systems in compliance with standards and with adherence to stringent deadlines and workflows. This stands me in good stead in the field of language services!

I believe in doing thorough, high quality work at reasonable prices, and am highly quality-conscious and deadline-driven. By reading texts carefully and researching the subject closely, my goal is to facilitate the delivery of accurate translations that are extremely faithful to the original.



Certifications and experience



I am accredited with Goethe Institut, a well-known institution for German language instruction worldwide, as also with the Alliance Française (French), and the erstwhile House of Soviet Culture (Russian), having obtained several certifications in these languages at these institutes.

I have had the opportunity to work as a software engineer in diverse fields, mainly in business/finance, in telecommunications and even natural language processing. I have also worked as a systems analyst on Wall Street, and am well-versed in the financial domain, especially credit rating systems. With a particular liking for law, I am currently handling my own legal matters and am well-versed with various legal systems.

Over the past decade, I have translated
