    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Landon IP The Art of Patent Searching in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    First was a phone call interview with the company's HR representative. She liked me and had me have a 1 on 1 Skype interview with the CEO. It was a Friday and he was working from home as well. The Skype interview was terrific. The translation department is new and reports directly to the CEO and he is very knowledgeable and very interested in how the patent translations will go. He's a great guy and was just as interested in me as a person as me as a potential Translation Project Manager

    They want mostly people who speak German since about 80% of their patents come from Germany, or Japanese since about about 10% come from Japan. However, I speak French and Russian and they were totally fine with that. Since the PM is also part of the 4 step translation process, you will need to be comfortable formatting and correcting documents to match the format of the source document, no matter what language they are translated to or from.

    Interview Questions
    • Everything was just very specific to managing multiple translation projects. They say that there are about 15 projects a week and there is an extensive and impressive translation and review process. It's a four step approach with a native translator, native reviewer, technical and formatting review by the project manager, then once over review by a native expert in the field who can review vocabulary.   Answer Question
