Patent Translation

The most common questions potential clients ask us about patent translations are:

   1. How do you ensure that your patent translations are correct?
   2. What can we as the client do to reduce patent translation cost?


QUESTION ONE consists really of two elements:
  • Linguistic accuracy we ensure by

  •    -   working with a translator that is a native speaker of the target language,
       -   who lives and works in the target country;
       -   the quality control process that all our patent translations undergo.

  • Technical accuracy we guarantee by working only with a translator that has an educational background and/or practical experience in the technical subject of the text.
And what about QUESTION TWO?

Yes, you can minimise translation cost by:

  • By sending us legible copies of the source text (original language text) if it is in printed form.
  • If the source document is in electronic form, send it in a reasonably common file format (e.g., a common word processor format or PDF).
  • Allow a reasonable time to complete the work to avoid an urgency surcharge.

Why Use Us?

At Academy Translations our people are the key to success.

All our translators have premium technical qualifications and experience using the latest specialized Translation Memory (TM) software (such as Déjà vu X).

We translate all patent specifications and related IP documents, patent claims and abstracts - certified for filing at IP Australia or overseas Patent Offices.

Every patent translation project is planned and executed by a team consisting of a project manager and one or more technical translators and proofreaders with native language skills and sound technical knowledge.
