What is patent translation?
Manufacturers or inventers of new products often decide to protect their product from someone else copying their design and taking advantage of the time and money which had been invested in the research and development stage. This usually involves applying for a patent, which once granted, prevents the design being used by anyone else unless permission is granted. The only snag in the current sales and marketing environment is that patents are normally only valid in the jurisdiction where it was granted. If the product is sold in any other country, the original patent may be invalid, which creates the possibility that the design can be easily copied and sold without being able to do anything to stop it. Unfortunately for the developer or manufacturer this means that patents need to be applied for in the countries where the product is marketed.
