Hi Shreya,

Thanks for the initiative. I am wondering if you have a list of translators too. I would be interested in networking with them as well.



Hi Somdatta, that is very interesting - I don’t have a list of translators, but it would be great to build one. If you know any, please invite them to post here, and we can spread the word from there on.


@Shreya and @somdattak – a quick place to start would be to ask kalyanasc, polybiotique and kollegala on Twitter. Kalyan is a translator himself and used to work at ISRO. The latter two are engaged in scicomm and IIRC have worked with translators themselves.


Regarding @somdattak’s query about translators, I’m also aware that Gubbi Labs / Research Matters (where I used to work) do translations in Hindi, Kannada & Marathi, and they are starting soon in other languages too. Might be worth contacting them on Twitter.


Hello All,’

Navodita from IndiaBioscience here. I am interested in the Scientific Temper Day slotted to be observed between August 15th- August 20th at TIFR Mumbai (and at a few other regions). Could someone based in Mumbai or Pune cover the event and write for us?



Hi Shreya,
It’s wonderful to know of this platform. I am a scientist-entrepreneur-columnist the filed of Genomics and Infectious Diseases. I advice a healthcare magazine on content framework and development. In this context, we’re reaching out to writers who can write well on various topics related to healthcare and innovations on a set time line. The frequency of write-up may tentatively be 1 article in 1-2 months and might appeal to students and researchers looking to start a career in writing.

Thanks & Regards,
Dr Swati Subodh
