Guinness World Records

Why is patent translation so important for UK innovators?

Professional patent translation is a key part of bringing any product, service, invention or process to a new market.

Without utilising an expert in the specialist terminology used in patent law, you leave yourself open to exploitation by other actors.

A survey by the Steinbeis Transfer Institute found that among international patent holders:

  • Nearly 80%had found translations which were open to interpretation or outright wrong
  • More than 50% understand that international patent translation errors were a serious risk
  • Over 25%had had problems securing patent applications because of translation mistakes

How we safeguard your Intellectual Property rights

As well as their expertise in international patent law, our specialist patent translators are used by UK businesses because they have extensive experience and/or qualifications in specific industries too.

It’s this pairing of understanding of the law itself and the science and technologies behind the inventions, products, services and processes they are protecting which makes our experts so effective.

They know that translating a patent involves the precise localisation of technical terminology and syntax into the target language. This might involve terms which have a different meaning locally. It might mean confirming that the region refers to theoretically industry-standard terms in just the same way.

Guaranteeing validity in the regions you target

Our patent specialist linguists create documents which are clear, which offer precise definitions and which will meet all of the legal requirements for patent documents in the region or jurisdiction you are targeting.

We work with both solo inventors and Fortune 500 companies alike. Because of our linguists’ first-hand technical knowledge of the field your property is in, every patent translation we produce for UK businesses – and our clients on five continents around the world – allow no room for misunderstanding.

  • Localised diagrams and figures created by our in-house DTP and typesetting team
  • High volume projects and single patentshandled with the same speed and ease
  • Project team building to handle projects as fast or faster than most of our competitors
  • Proofreading, back-translation and reconciliation for high-value projects
