Patent Translation Services
In the recent past, there has been an upsurge in the number of patents filed worldwide Organizations are expanding their reach to new markets overseas. To be able to get legal protection for your trademark, intellectual property or copyright in a foreign country, you are required to translate the patent document into an official language of that country.
Patent translations help to outline the nature of the business and type of products and services associated with the company. An accurate translation service will give you the edge you need in your industry. Patent translations need to be precise, clear and factual.
Why do you need professional patent translators?
An incorrect patent translation can narrow the scope of your patent claim. During court proceedings, an inaccurate translation might get rejected by the courts. Worse still, you might lose your intellectual property rights because of poor translation or uncertified translators.
A patent translation can only be validated by the courts if the translators followed due process in the translation. For a translation to qualify as evidence, the courts stipulate that the translation work should be done by an experienced and certified translator.
To get your patent translations right, you need skilled translators who are experts in the field of your brainchild. Expert translators will understand the language and terminology of your field of business, and they are familiar with country-specific regulations. Expert translators will give you the perfect translation you need to safeguard your patent in foreign countries.

Types of patent translations
On the Dot Translations does two types of patent translations; translations for information, and translations for filing. These two types of patent translations have different uses and separate audiences. Your objectives and audience determine the kind of patent translation you would require. Intended purpose and the audience type are the aspects we consider during translation.
Our translated patents can either be used for marketing or meet legal requirements when you expand your business to foreign countries. Patents translated for filing are used to achieve legal requirements in overseas countries. These patents are likely to be used by lawyers, registration officers and patent licensees in the said nations.
Patents translated into information are used to break down the contents of filed patents for use as evidence in court proceedings in cases of intellectual property rights infringement.
A) Patent translations for filing
We understand that a patent translation needs to cater to diverse audiences, and so we do the job in a transparent and simplified manner. The resultant simplified translations can enable even a layperson to understand the type and nature of your intellectual property. Our skilled translators use short sentences, precise description, and uncomplicated vocabulary in the translations to eliminate ambiguity.
By and large, patents translated for filing can be entirely different from the original charters. Our translators can add or remove text from the initial license, according to a client's request. The result is an easy to understand patent for all types of audiences.
Though translating patent documents for filing allows for flexibility, the translation still needs to preserve the content, meaning, and nature of the original patent. This requires that we work closely with the client.
We are dedicated to meet every customer's specific needs, and so we hold consistent consultations with our clients through the whole process. This close collaboration helps us to deliver an efficient and effective translation that can meet every country-specific standards.
B) Patent translations for information
We approach this type of translation with caution. Patent translation for information requires a literal translation that is as close as possible to the original patent. There is no room for adding or subtracting data here. There are no set standards as to what a literal translation must be like.
Simple changes like changing the position of a comma in a sentence can give a different meaning to the patent. Our magic formula here is to stick to the original content with minimal changes in punctuation and sentence structures. We have in-house patent attorneys and experts in various fields of business to handle these types of translations.
