Intonation Ltd. is a Language Services Provider (LSP) based in Fareham, Hampshire, in the south of England. The company has over 30 years’ experience in the translation industry and focuses on technical, with a particular emphasis on patent, engineering, marketing and sports translation, as well as operating a specialised legal and financial division, City Legal Translations.

Job Background

The company currently services some of the UK’s major patent and IP firms and, due to ongoing growth and additional workload, is looking to take on a full time patent translator to add extra capacity to our translation team.  The company is based in Fareham, but the position can be worked remotely.

Although a preference will be made for translators experienced in the field, full training can be given and translators with any experience that match the requirements are encouraged to apply.

Our translators are expected to translate a minimum of 2000 words per working day, once working at full capacity, but it is understood that for new translators or those not so experienced in patent translation, a training period to build up to this will be required.
