I am about to start translating a japanese patent to a Certified Copy of the Foreign Application in English.

However, I am not sure about the style for them (such as how they are organized and what headings are commonly used), so I need a sample to look at.

Where can I find samples of them?
Any sample is fine as long as it is in English.

PS. A reference to a style guide is also appreciated.

"The Japan Patent Office (JPO) has had for many years a free MT tool on its website for translations of all Japanese patent applications published since 1994. Google Translate is now available on the European Patent Office (EPO) and World Industrial Property Organization (WIPO) website for translations of patent applications between at least 28 languages, including many European languages as well as languages such as Japanese, Chinese, and Korean."

Or have a look at
if a *European* patent is applied for.
