Dear All,

There have been a few jobs posted recently for patent translators and, as a PhD chemist, this is an obvious area for me to get into. However, they all ask for experience and/or credentials and so I was wondering whether anyone knows of any online courses or could give me some advice as to how to get started in this field.

Many thanks in advance,

Patent Trainings Apr 12, 2007

Hi Andrew,

Surely, Patent translations are a very interesting field.

Trainings about Patent translations, legal aspects, contracts, etc. are in our Training Program schedule.

For Spain, we did not finalize the agreement with the trainers, but you surely will see some trainings organized by and related with those topics soon.

Please keep an eye on this page.

Patent Abstracts Apr 12, 2007

Could you not contact publishers of patent abstracts? The first language-related work I got was writing English abstracts of German patents. Then, in the late 1980's, people with qualifications in chemistry were much sought - I can't think the situation is much different now.
