Keywords: scientific and technical translation, copyright, legal protection, state registration, use, copyright agreement

Abstract

The goal is to determine the expediency of legal protection of scientific and technical translation as an object of copyright, as well as to identify the advantages of its state registration for further use.
Methods. The monographic method was used for comprehensive and in-depth studying of scientific and technical translation among the set of copyright objects. Based on the analysis and synthesis of scientific and legislative sources on translation activities and intellectual property, it is proposed to define scientific and technical translation as an object of copyright. On the basis of the method of systematization, the types of technical (scientific and technical) translations, both protected and not protected by copyright, are distinguished.
Results. The carried-out studies have confirmed the need for state registration of copyright for scientific and technical translation. The main reasons that motivate translators to obtain a certificate are the possibility of confirming authorship and ownership in dispute resolution, as well as the prospect of commercial use of translation rights. The main methods of commercialization of translation rights are considered, in particular, when copyright is added to the authorized capital of an enterprise or by transferring publication rights to a publishing house.
Originality. Scientific and technical translations are systematized according to the criterion of the creative component and originality into those that are objects of copyright and those that are not. The definition of scientific and technical translation as an object of copyright has been formulated. An algorithm has been built to ensure the legal protection of the translation, which includes the conclusion of an agreement between the author of the original work and the translator, its state registration, preparing and filing of an application for registration of copyright for translation to Ukrpatent, examination of the application and obtaining a certificate of registration of copyright for the work.
Practical implications. The results of this research can be used by translators in their professional activities in order to prevent copyright infringement and to benefit from the results of their creative activities, and also as a basis for further research on technical (scientific and technical) translations as objects of copyright.
