PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

Founder & CEOMatruWeb, Noida, India • Jan 2016 - present
MatruWeb is dedicated to localizing and translating India based English language web content from English to Hindi and other Indian languages. There is a compelling need for such services, because the number of Indian language literate people in India far exceeds the number of English literate people. My approach is to try to come up with a machine learning based software tool to convert text from English to Hindi and to other Indian languages. Current machine translation tools don't do a very good job of English to Indian language machine translation.
