Invitation to file the translation 

Where the translation is not filed in time, the EPO will invite the applicant to rectify this deficiency within a non-extendable period of two months. Failure to file the translation in due time in response to this invitation results in the application being deemed to be withdrawn under Art. 14(2), and in this case further processing is ruled out (see A‑III, 14).
