Getting started in patent translation

18 January 2022 9.30am – 12.30pm GMT ITI online workshop

Patent translation is an excellent niche to specialise in, especially if you already have some experience with technical translation more generally.

This workshop will provide a strong foundation of the knowledge and skills you will require if you are a translator looking to start or further your patent translation career, or if you are a reviewer or project manager who regularly encounters patents.

During the three hour workshop you will:

  • Gain an introduction to a wide range of documents involved in the entire patenting process, and get to see specifically some of the most common documents.
  • Be shown how to write patents in English and discuss how to translate the standard components of patents
  • Learn about the patent translation industry in general
  • Receive a brief introduction to some of the software, translation strategies, workflows, and reviewing methods that you will need to work in patent translation.

The workshop will work into English throughout.
