International Patent Translations for the Health Sciences:
Localizing IP Documentation for Smoother Multilingual Market Expansion

International patent translations are a vital tool for health science companies expanding the commercial reach of medical and health products across languages. As the demand for healthcare products grows overseas, life science companies are continuously expanding into global markets with their IP. However, due to different international legal frameworks, English-language patents do not have the same amount of protection as a patent in the market’s primary language. To ensure that their intellectual property (IP) is safe, life science companies from pharmaceuticals to biotechnology and medical device companies can file patents with the appropriate regulatory body in the country they want to expand into, or file an application 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 many EU countries and other regions. 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 successfully complete both the PCT filing process and the patent application itself, companies need to ensure that their application documents are translated accurately and localized in a timely manner, and that both legal and medical terminology is uniform across patent filings. CSOFT Health Sciences has the experience and expertise, as well as 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 IP, life science companies can engage in a process known as patent litigation. In order to successfully conduct patent litigation in foreign markets, life science companies need a variety of legal documentation 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 are able to provide highly accurate and fast translations for patent litigation case documents in 250+ languages.
