To extend my question here, I am looking for a translation of the Rig Veda by an Indian author. A translation either in English or Hindi would do.

I found one in Hindi by Ramgovind Trivedi, but it is not that great either.

  • I am surprised that it is so difficult to find. I hope someone has done it by now. – Amit Saxena May 15 '16 at 18:43

    See RigVeda on Indian Scriptures. – The Destroyer Jun 2 '16 at 12:51
  • @TheDestroyer Thanks, this seems like a much better translation than on sacred-texts – Amit Saxena Jun 2 '16 at 14:03

    @AmitSaxena It seems they wrote translation from commentaries of Sayana and Bhatta Bhatta Bhaskara. – The Destroyer Jun 2 '16 at 14:19
  • Why Ram Govind Trivedi's translation is not great? – Tat Tvam Asi Jul 21 '18 at 19:19

Q. I am looking for a translation of the Rig Veda by an Indian author. A translation either in English or Hindi would do.

You can refer Rigveda with Hindi translation by Gayatri Parivar at Literature - All world Gayatri Parivar. By Pandit Sri Ram Sharma Aacharya.

You can find Rigveda (original scanned book version) [Sanskrit-Hindi] at here (You can read online or purchase the book):

enter image description here

  • Part 1 (A,B,C) contains Rigveda Mandala 1 and 2.
  • Part 2 (A,B,C) contains Rigveda Mandala 3 to 6.
  • Part 3 (A,B) contians Rigveda Mandala 7 and 8.
  • Part 4 (A,B) contains Rigveda Mandala 9 and 10.

Note that the last page of Part 4-B available for reading online ends with 11th Verse of 97th Sukta of 10th Mandala. i.e further pages are missing in online reading version.

    Actually, Gayatri parivar's version is hindi transalation of max-muller's english version! – user12262 Oct 22 '17 at 7:46
  • Gayatri pariva's translation is inline with Sayanacharya's bhashya no relation with max-muller I observe – Paṇḍyā Nov 10 at 13:56

Word to word translation with commentary (Sanskrit+Hindi) is available at website of AryaSamaj, Jamnagar, by Dayananda Saraswati:

Also have a look at English translation of RigVeda at Internet Archive.

Apart from Dayanada Saraswati's and Sriram Sharma Acharya's commentary and translations, I noticed another two reputed commentaries you may find useful:
