“Everyone has their secret recipes for success, but an efficient process leads you to the desired results”, Rishi Anand CEO, Linguidoor.
“Without language, one cannot talk to people and understand them; one cannot share their hopes and aspirations, grasp their history, appreciate their poetry, or savor their songs.”- Nelson Mandela
Rishi Anand, the passionate warrior of his dreams always knew the importance of languages. And he always had a special place for languages thus he decided to move from his home town Patna to Delhi to learn German Language and took admission in JNU, enrolled himself in a bachelor’s program in German literature and languages.
But it wasn’t easy to pursue his passion at all, as no one in his family and peer group ever learnt and studied a Foreign Language. But the passionate Rishi wasn’t ready to change his mind, so he took his stand and started working really hard, and while graduating he earned himself internship twice back in 2011 and 2012 in Germany. The experience in Germany changed his life and he got himself enrolled in University of Rostock, Germany as the only foreign student for a master’s program in German Studies.
“I was the only foreigner in my Master Studies and that motivated me to do something better and bigger”
After his master’s in 2016, he worked with some big Startups in Berlin. Since 2010 Rishi has worked as freelance Translator for many big companies, where he learned the basics and the functioning of the translation industry. And Finally in 2017, he started his company Linguidoor Language Services in Berlin
Linguidoor: The Journey
In the beginning, Rishi was the only one in the company but as he says “ I always believe in thinking big and starting small, that’s what the motto at the beginning” He was doing his job and handling his company all alone. The hard work, dedication, and his optimistic approach were multiplied into results. And His Dream to provide a platform where freelance Translation and content creator could work was now becoming the reality, and as the company started growing the people kept joining, and he now has 2000+ Language experts in 65+ Languages from across the globe working with him.
Thus in 2019, Rishi decided to discontinued his other job to focus 100% on his company. With Rishi’s vision and his team of passionates, Linguidoor is growing swiftly and is set to become the finest Translation service provider not only in Germany and India but across the globe.
