Translation services for Asian patent information

We can translate as little or as much as you need - from titles, bibliographic data and claims to abstracts or whole documents. The language combinations we offer are:

  • Chinese to English or German
  • Japanese to English or German
  • Korean to English or German.

Our translation services give you access to a network of qualified translators specialising in various technical fields. Specifically, they offer high-quality human translations of patent and utility model documents.

These documents can be translated from Japanese or Chinese into English or German. We can also translate from Korean into English.

Upon request, we can provide you with translations of file wrapper information and other technical or legal documents.

By using our services to translate an Asian patent document you can

  • gain a better understanding of its technical content
  • save costs by ordering only the parts of the document that you need – for example, claims
  • request a certified version of the translation, if that is legally required.
Getting started
To request a cost estimate, simply e-mail us the document to be translated or the document number. We will calculate a price range based on the number of pages, usually within a few hours. If you are happy with our quote, you can then place an order.
