Watertight Translation for the Patents and Intellectual Property

Patents and trademarks represent the legal framework that protects your intellectual property and inventions. They need to be filed in foreign jurisdictions, however, to be recognised there as well.

In the world of intellectual property and patents, any misinterpreted terms can have damaging effects. We understand how important the correct use of language is in an IP legal filing and go to extraordinary lengths to make our translations as watertight as possible.

It all begins with an APM-certified project manager, who ensures we assign specialised linguists to your project. They’ll appoint a translator from within our huge network of over 2500 linguists covering more than 100 countries and jurisdictions. Among them are a number of proven and highly-versed IP translation experts.

These are people with a language qualification to at least Masters level. They’re not only familiar with local patent law, but also a diverse range of industries, including the legal, financial and technology sectors. They’ll produce accurate translations of applications that conform to the target country’s patent style and regulations.

We guarantee that your IP translation will be legally sound, accepted by organisations such as the WIPO and the EPO, and won't be subject to any misinterpretation.

Depending on the jurisdiction, you might need certification of the translation such as a translator's declaration, notarisation and legalisation. We can provide this.

You can also benefit from our assessment of the relevance of foreign language patents and applications to yours. We can decide if you need a full translation of the patent. Our Key Data Extraction service can translate only the relevant information, saving you time and money.

You also have plenty of confidential information to protect, so we offer GDPR assurance and back up your data to international security and quality standards ISO 27001 and ISO 9001.
