ATA Science and Technology Division had many interesting and valuable presentations during the 52nd annual conference and we hope for the same this year. Share your expertise while increasing your recognition in your field. Submit your proposal by March 12th.
Division member Bruce Popp is giving a webinar for patent translators on March 22 through ATA. For more information and to register, please follow this link: ATA Webinar 107 Patents.
Here is the abstract:
This webinar discusses some techniques for searching primary sources for subject matter terminology needed when translating patent applications. Related patents originally drafted in the target language are particularly valuable primary sources. I will discuss bibliographic techniques for finding them. I will also cover techniques for dealing with chemical compound names and names of mechanical parts.
