Patent translation specialists

A fundamental legal tool for exporting innovation to foreign markets, patent translations are the true core business of Mercury Translations and the indispensable prerequisite for companies wishing to effectively protect their patent portfolios, in compliance with legal agreements

Patent Translations: Protecting Intellectual Property

For more than twenty-five years, we have been translating any kind of documentation related to patent application and Intellectual Property protection: patent specification, descriptive pleadings and claim sets, patent reports and litigation, expert opinions, prior art searches, European patent validations, assignments of rights, licence and coexistence agreements

Your patent translation agency

With the same perfectionism that characterises us in technical translations as in scientific translations , over the years we have gained solid experience in Patent translations, quickly becoming the point of reference for patent attorneys and law firms dealing with patent and Intellectual Property law. We offer patent translations services in more than 50 language combinations

The language of patents: technical areas of specialisation

Our IP language services involve patent attorneys and legal departments from all industrial areas active in R&D and product innovation, and especially

  • Aeronautics
  • Automotive
  • Biotech
  • Industrial Chemistry
  • Electronics
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Information Technology
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Medical
  • Semiconductors
  • Telecommunication

Prior art – Application - Litigation

From the point of view of prior art, filing procedures and oppositions, a quick but accurate patent translation that is faithful, consistent with the original text and conforms to the standards required by governmental bodies and patent offices helps protect the patent from infringement and defend it against property theft and litigation

Translation glossaries for patent documents

The synergy between linguistic expertise and a mixture of technical, legal and bureaucratic skills facilitates the drafting of necessarily literal, source-oriented translations of patent dossiers and the consequent use of exact terminologies that can be updated in customised digital glossaries on a shared platform, which can also be used later to maintain consistency and fidelity of texts

CAT assisted translations for the innovating industry

Patent translators and proofreaders are supported by translation memories and computer-aided translation systems (CAT tools), which are indispensable for ensuring consistency within the same document, in long-term projects and in text updates on existing products or new releases. This preserves perfect linguistic homogeneity in style as well as in the use of vocabulary.

3 pricing plans for Patent translation services

The three pricing plans developed by Mercury Translations for professional translations in the various fields of the patent industry are tailored to different needs based on document type, purpose and budget.

If, for example, an R&D department developing a new product needs to translate documentation solely for information purposes into a known language such as English, it will consider standard quality control sufficient.

On the other hand, in the event of a patent dispute, a patent attorney will need to be able to rely on the highest level of linguistic accuracy through particularly accurate quality control, a level offered by our premium rate.
