International Patent Translations
Providing multilingual international patent translations and legal communication solutions to help companies protect their intellectual property in foreign markets
International patent translations are a vital tool for health science companies seeking to expand their commercial reach of medical and health products globally. As the demand for healthcare products grows overseas, life science companies continuously expand into global markets with their intellectual property. However, due to different international legal frameworks, English-language patents do not have the same protection as those in a market’s primary language. To ensure their intellectual property is safe, life science companies, from pharmaceuticals to biotechnology and medical device companies, must file patents with the appropriate regulatory body in the country they want to expand into or apply with the Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT).
Regardless of how they choose to do so, to protect their intellectual property and comply with regulations in these foreign markets, life science companies must ensure that their utility patents and design patents are accurately translated with quick turnaround times. A simple mistake could mean the difference between life and death for patients when safe and effective medical products are not legally available. With a global network of 10,000 linguists and in-country health law subject matter experts, CSOFT Health Sciences provides life science companies with multilingual international patent translation solutions in 250+ languages.
Terminology Management for PCT Filing
The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) creates a uniform standard for filing patent applications in over 150 countries. In addition to filing a PCT application, life sciences companies must file a patent application in the language of the country or region they want to access. To complete both the PCT filing process and the patent application itself, companies must ensure that their application documents are translated accurately and localized promptly and that legal and medical terminology is uniform across patent filings. CSOFT Health Sciences has the experience, expertise, and global in-country resources to help life science companies conduct terminology management to translate patent materials for successful PCT filing.

Patent Litigation Support
When expanding into foreign markets, it is inevitable that an intellectual property dispute, such as other companies using patented technology without permission or compensation, will arise. To protect their intellectual property, life science companies can engage in a process known as patent litigation. To successfully conduct patent litigation in foreign markets, life science companies need various legal documents translated with extreme accuracy on short notice. Utilizing our in-country linguists with a minimum of 7 years of experience, combined with our health law subject matter experts, we provide highly accurate and fast translations for patent litigation case documents.

Intellectual property (IP) in the life sciences sector encompasses intangible assets such as medical inventions, pharmaceutical formulas, biotechnological innovations, and healthcare-related designs, all of which can be patented. Given the complex nature of the life sciences industry and its global reach, it’s imperative to ensure that international patent nuances and terminologies are accurately represented in translations. Different countries may have distinct regulations concerning life sciences IPs, but the universal goal is to foster research, promote advancements in healthcare, and protect the interests of innovators. IPs, akin to other property rights, ensure that researchers and organizations in the life sciences benefit from their groundbreaking contributions. In the international landscape, precise and specialized IP translations are critical to safeguard these rights and maintain the integrity of life-changing innovations across borders.
