Hello all,
I just ran upon these completely by accident on the United States Patent and Trademark Office's website and thought I would share them in case anyone was interested :

http://www.uspto.gov/learning-and-resources/global-intellectual-property-academy-gipa/uspto-webinars-and-ip-e-learning#heading-1

"The Global Intellectual Property Academy (GIPA) has produced six modules on intellectual property protection and enforcement in five languages. The languages include English, Spanish, French, Arabic, and Russian. These modules cover all areas of intellectual property protection which include patents, copyrights, trademarks, geographical indications, enforcement and trade."

I haven't had time to watch all the way through yet, but from what I can tell, they are exactly the same presentations in the five languages mentioned. So, by opening two windows and watching the same presentation in two languages simultaneously (chapter by chapter) seems like an interesting way of picking up some vocab in this area.

They also have a monolingual (English) glossary of intellectual property terminology here :

Hope you find these useful !

Thanks for sharing, Jeff! Oct 13, 2015

I think these videos may be very useful for translators, working in the field. And you are right, the content is exactly the same (I have compared presentation in English to the one in Russian). Thank you once again and happy translating!

Although I translate from English or German into Turkish, this glossary is still valuable for me.
