Collaboration between DCU Postgraduates and World Intellectual Property Organization

CTTS researcher Dr Patrick Cadwell has been facilitating collaboration this semester between the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and students on DCU’s MA in Translation Studies and MSc in Translation Technology. The collaborative project offers students of terminology the chance to create bilingual term records from patents with the prospect of having this work published on WIPO’s multilingual terminology portal.

As part of the collaboration, Philippe Rouquet, a senior terminologist in WIPO’s PCT Translation Division, visited DCU in November. Philippe presented an overview of his organization and the Patent Cooperation Treaty and provided students with practical advice on how to use WIPO’s patent database and terminology portal. Philippe also outlined career opportunities available to students of translation with a passion for terminology and cutting-edge scientific and technical knowledge.
