Qualification of our patent translators

Your patent specifications will be translated into all languages of the world by native speakers who live in the target country and have in-depth knowledge of the respective technical field and patent class. Our patent translators are, for example, engineering graduates in electrical engineering, mechanical engineers, physicists, chemists, biologists etc. as well as graduate technical translators having many years of translation experience in patent affairs. These translators have therefore received their training to become patent translators either at patent attorneys, patent departments etc., or some patent translators have been trained by us. All our colleagues are familiar with the high duty of care with which patent translations in particular must be carried out.

Step by step to first-class quality - our procedures for patent translations

In order to ensure high-quality patent translations, we proceed according to the following principle:

Patent analysis

We analyze your patent with regard to the field of the invention and collate the necessary reference material. We select a patent translator who is technically suitable for the particular patent class. 

Translation of the patent

We translate your patent carefully and scientifically in order to ensure uniformity in the entire translation and in any subsequent patents. 


After translation, each patent is proofread again and specifically with regard to technical accuracy and patent-specific formulations.


After a factually correct patent translation is provided, this is edited. Expression and sentence structure are checked again so that the result quite simply reads like a patent.

Formatting and layout of the patent

The translated patents are formatted in the correct patent format. Any patent drawings are translated and re-annotated.

Delivery on time

We know about the deadlines for patents. Your translated patent will therefore be delivered absolutely on time.

Our punctuality with patent translations

In addition to the high commitment of our patent translators, our clients also value our absolute punctuality and reliability, two essential points with regard to deadlines in patent affairs. Even with very short deadlines, we do everything we can to meet your wishes. If necessary, our translators work over the weekend for you.

High quality at fair prices

Transparency and security

High quality at fair prices – with this motto we have been successful for more than 35 years. It is important to us that you are informed of the costs at all times.

• We calculate patent translations - differently according to client and country - either by the number of words in the target language or per standard line of the target language.

• Patent attorneys usually require an invoice per word whilst company clients frequently require an invoice per standard line. In some countries invoicing is exclusively per word of the source text. We are also guided by our clients’ wishes.

• If you compare us with the competitors you will be surprised at the favourable rates of our patent translations.
