Patent Application Translation: Necessity And Key Considerations

Table of Contents

Patent application is essential in protecting intellectual property rights and exploring new technologies. However, language can be a significant barrier when you want to enter the international market and have to file patent applications in different countries. That’s why patent application translation become increasingly necessary.

There are many important factors that need to be considered when it comes to translating patent applications. Let’s explore this process with Thao & Co.

What is patent application translation?

A patent application is a detailed set of documents describing a new invention, including the ideas, implementation methods, and technical solutions. The patent application is considered a proof document and helps protect the inventor’s intellectual property rights for their invention.

Translating a patent application is the process of converting the content of the patent application from one original language to another. This ensures that the detailed information about the invention is understood accurately and correctly in the target language, serving the purpose of protecting intellectual property rights and sharing knowledge with the international community.

When do you need patent application translation?

You may need to get your patent application translated when:

  1. ● Applying for a patent in foreign countries: When attempting to register a patent in a different country, it is necessary to translate the patent registration documents for submission to the competent authority.
  2. ● Filing your patent under the PCT Agreement: The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) is an international agreement that allows applicants to file and obtain international patent protection. When registering under the PCT Agreement, you must also translate the patent application documents for submission to International Searching Authorities (ISAs) or competent authorities in member countries of the PCT Agreement.
