Writing & Translation

In addition to teaching yoga and meditation, I am a freelance writer and translator. For the last 10 years, I have worked around the world to create content for companies working in software, facilities management, tourism, education, wellness, and fashion industries. 

I speak four languages — being multilingual was essential while working with many universities and nonprofits in New York City. I was a website manager and grant-writer for the Queens College Office of Global Education Initiatives, as well as for Inspire Corps, a Brooklyn-based arts and education program. I also led a weekly creative writing group for undocumented teenage girls ⁠— together we created an anthology called The Unknown Feminist. In addition, I partnered with many programs to help lead international educational trips for youth. I also currently sit on the board of Advice Project Media, a global nonprofit organization based in New York City.

I am the editor and translator of two e-books, now available online at http://www.ayurvedavatika.com

“Working with Saskia has been a beautiful and profound process. Very few times have I worked with someone so connected, with such care, so professional thus with and open heart. The highlight of her work is that- being a writer herself, Saskia translates with an amazing use of language, together with the essence she’s able to capture. I honestly feel lucky both my Ayurveda books were translated by Saskia.”

What People Say

Saskia possesses a committed personality and a willingness to learn that is very valuable, particularly in a remote work setting. Saskia has created a collection of real-life experiences that demonstrate her willingness to connect with people who are different from her and to take risks. Her first-hand knowledge of cultures and languages brings huge value to relationship building and connectivity needed in both large and small organizations alike.

While Saskia Kaya worked with me, she demonstrated that she is a highly accomplished and skilled international educator, writer, and manager. She is an efficient problem solver, and knows how to communicate and work well with all stakeholders, students, faculty, parents, and staff. She doesn’t need much supervision, recognizes where she can be most effective, and jumps in where needed. She can be trusted to tackle projects big and small.
