3 Components of Effective Patent Translation

Language Expertise

Patents require interdisciplinary translations by expert linguists.

Flare for Legalese

Patent translations are often classified as legal translations, so you’ll need someone fluent in the target language and patent legalese.

Technical Know How

If a patent concerns an agricultural machine, for example, the translation also requires technical expertise.

Scope of Our Work

Summa Linguae Technologies offers patent translations in the fields of medicine, finance, technology, communication, and IT. We provide professional translations of such documents as:

  • patents
  • technical specifications
  • expert opinions
  • technical documentation
  • patent publications
  • license documents
  • and many others

How can you ensure high quality patent translation?


Partner with a reliable translation agency

Long-term cooperation with one language services provider has many advantages. It’s much more cost-efficient than sporadic translation orders for several or several dozen translators.


Tap into translators who specialize in many fields

Time is often an important factor in patent and grant translation. We have an extensive database of translators able to speak rare languages and produce express translations.


Benefit from modern translation technology

The more translations you order, the more data is stored in the memory. The translation process then becomes quicker and cheaper. Still, the quality terminological consistency is maintained.

Client Success Stories


A Polish patent law firm

Project Details

• Industry: medical, chemical, medical devices, technical
• Languages: English, German, French, Japanese, Polish

Scope of Work

As a patent law firm, our client processes big volumes of patent documents every month. The company is in constant need of specialized translation. We cooperate in regard of translations and localization of patents that usually concern science, like chemistry. So far, our cooperation covered translation of 500-700 pages per month (average).

How we did it

The content concerns highly specialized areas like chemistry. We handles the full process – our DTP department provides analysis and prepares the files, and after translation our internal QA department provides full editing with proofreading.

We have recently moved a client-specific glossary to a different format and updated it. Due to the nature of the texts, the client required us to follow very specific formatting and terminology rules.

And due to the nature of our cooperation we worked out an individual process of ordering translations and updating them.
