Madhuri Hegde began her journey in the language industry in 2003. A polyglot who speaks 5 languages, Madhuri established Mayflower Language Services in India at the very start of localization as a concept in India. Her fascination for different cultures and 18 years of experience enabled her to create solutions that help companies and people succeed globally. Her experience with translation, cross-cultural communication, international business, marketing and entrepreneurship in different countries have given her valuable insights in overcoming global business challenges. With her knowledge and strategic approach, she has driven the reach of Mayflower to over 30 countries across the globe.
Today, Madhuri takes her passion beyond Mayflower. As a member of the Board of Directors for Elia, she is actively pursuing her interest in developing the global language ecosystem. Madhuri believes in the power of strong relationships between freelance translators and language companies. She believes that people are the foundation of the language industry and that their progress is essential for the growth of the industry.
