Do you know a Linguist?

If you know anyone who knows any foreign language, (native speakers are great) please let me know.

I am not looking at Indian Languages.

If the person is not a native speaker of the language, he/she must at least have sufficient mastery. If they have experience translating, better still. But thats not a definite criterion.

Do let me know... leave a comment or mail me :)

And I am getting the look and feel of my website changed.. so lots up and coming!

Arvind said...

I know English :-D

p.s : is English considered Indian Language :P ?

Shan said...

av.com and google both offers free translations but not the best.Well, the translation is not even is good.I know french but its not my native language and its been a while since i've used it.If its for a website then translating it is not a big deal at all.But if you are looking into translating large passages then thats hard.Anyway hope i was helpful.Oh btw my sis is a german born girl so german is not a problem.

Rajesh said...

Are you planning to float any
medical transcription company??!!!!... haa.haa..

Any way, if you interested in learning any new foreign
languages...almost most of the European consulates in chennai are
conducting language classes.

Anand said...

Since you're asking for linguists, I know of a few Phd linguistics students in my uni from Italy and Germany. I can ask them if you need anything in particular!

Chinmayi said...

Rajesh: I am not going to learn any new language for now.. I just need to network with some translators thats all.. And medical transcription is is something totally different from translation!

Anand: sounds good.. somebody who would also be interested in doing some translation for people here in Indian.

Ganesh said...

chinmayi Mr.Raghavan has given his contact nos, in your comments section.
You contact him if you are still interested.

Arvind said...

That was supposed to be a joke ! :P

Chinmayi said...

Arvind: I get asked the question a lot of times.. sorry I took it seriously!

Ganesh: I spoek to Mr. Raghavan, Thanks :)

hi i know a foreign language, TAMIL !

Tamil is spoken in singapore, malaysia , hongkong , some parts of japan, cook islands, madagascar, some pacific and indian ocean islands.

In fact i dont think any other language is spoken in india and also other parts of the world !!


So Tamil is a foreign language and i can do tamil translation.

Ok so u gonna sing for some hollywood movie ?? wow!!! great news chinmayiiii!!!

Shan said...

... Sure Miss Chinmayi, i'll get her to email you.Actually she is on her vacation in India right now and should be back in Germany in about 2 weeks so as soon as she is back i'll ask her to get in touch with you.

Ideamani said...

Spanish - Hmm, cant say I know too many technical words - But let me know what kind of translation is required - Oral or written, thats important ...

Chinmayi said...

Ideamani: Not Oral.. written.

Hi Chinmayi
This comment is not related to your current post. But, it would be great if you could post audio files of you singing classical songs (carnatic, meera bhajans etc). Also, if you are still looking to get a laptop, the sony vaio is too good (VGN-S460). this is a little pricey, but its tiny, convenient and sleeK (with a dvd burner drive).

thennavan said...

One of my relatives, a lady is good in French (we used to call her "French" chiththi). Dunno if her profile is the kind you are looking for since she is well past her prime now.

Chinmayi said...

Hey Then: As far as translation is concerned I think there is no such thing as 'prime'... if she is still good.. it sounds good to me.. can you give me her contact? and where is she?

Chinmayi said...

HI anonymous:

I need a human translator.. If machine translations were that good then there would be no need for linguists!

Thanks anyway.. maybe it will throw up the meanings of new words

Daedalus said...

I know Arabic and French. I'm looking to start my own translation company someday soon. Not sure why you are asking, but I thought I'd throw that out there.
