Bio

Trained Professional Interpreter; Five years in Health care Research; Doctor of Veterinary Medicine; MSc in Microbiology and Public Health; PhD in Medical Pathology

My name is Shrawan Bhandari and I am origionally from Nepal. I am a part-time freelance English<>Nepali translator/interpreter based in New Zealand. I am a fully bilingual health-care researcher, grown up in Nepali speaking community. I have completed Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Nepal and MSc in Microbiology and Public Health from New Zealand. I have also completed PhD in Medical Pathology in 2012.

Specializations: While I am happy to translate, edit or proofread general texts (Stories, for example), I mainly specialize in the field of Biomedical sciences and related areas. I have in-depth knowledge of Nepali, Hindi and English medical terminology. My fields of expertise include: 1) General Science; 2) Biotechnology; 3) Pharmaceuticals; 4) General Medicine; 5) Public health and 6) Veterinary medicine.

Resources: State-of-the-art PC-hardware and -software equipment enable me to work with a wide range of file formats. The CAT-programs SDLX and Trados and SDL Trados Studio 2011 supplement the office software packages (OpenOffice 3.1 and MS Office 2010). A high-speed broadband internet connection guarantees constant availability and makes up- and down- loading of large files very easy. As I am a computer enthusiast, I have all my hardwares and softwares perfoming at the best.

I have been living in New Zealand since 2004 and I have near native level of English. I also have an excellent written communications skills including medical and scientific report writing.
I have been working directly with the clients as well as through the outsources.

I have gained insights into the translation and interpreting industry by taking a five week intensive course from Interpreting New Zealand.

With each freelance project I undertake, I guarantee high quality work delivered on or before deadline and prompt response to your phone calls and e-mails. Please let me know if I can provide you with any additional information.
