Patent translation is useful on two different levels.
A patent translation can be filed with an international patent office in order to receive new patent rights in a different country — in fact, the European Union is looking to reform their patent system with a simplified patent translation process.
Patent translations are also helpful for gleaning information from a foreign patent.
Patent Translation for Filing
If you need a patent translation to receive patent rights in another country, you need a legal translating service that is accurate and knowledgeable, not to mention fast.
After a party obtains a patent, there is usually only a short amount of time permitted to file a patent translation and obtain patent rights in another country.
If you are considering filing in another country, great amounts of money invested in research and intellectual assets are at stake. You will want to move quickly!
Patent Translation for Information
Not all patent translations are done to prepare for filing. Many times, a party will want to find out the basic information in a patent, or just a specific part of a patent. An entire certified translation would be unnecessary in this situation.
An informational translation — a translation that concentrates less on sentence length and precise phrasing — is helpful in these cases. If there are specific questions that need to be answered, or if a party just needs to get the gist of a patent, an informational translation is more than suitable.
Translating a patent for information can also be a useful way to find legal or technical information, as well as legal evidence. These can be used to defend a different patent or other copyright issues.
