Andrew Bell

Western Australia

Since 2000 I have been a freelance translator/copy-editor/localiser (US English into UK or Australian English) and translate from Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Icelandic, German and Dutch into English. I am a member of the ATA, ITI and AUSIT and have also passed the U.S. NCLEX-RN in Atlanta, Georgia. I am also a member of Mensa Australia. I am married to Liz (an obstetrician/GP) and we live in Western Australia with our 3 children, two dogs, one rabbit and a cat. I have a diploma in copyediting and proofreading for publishing (Dip. Publishing) and am also majoring in Italian and English at the University of Western Australia. I love networking/touching base with other translators and try and get to at least one conference annually. I specialize in medical translation - predominantly articles from medical journals, academic theses, patient records, QRD-related material etc. I also translate/localise cycling material and any other sporting texts. I am currently part of the freelance team used by Trek Cycles for their localisation work.
