Translation services in patent.

Pearl Linguistics is specialised in Patent translations.

Patent translations must be unambiguous in content, precise in terminology and clear in presentation. They take place where two complex and subtle translation disciplines – legal and technical – intersect, and therefore demand a specialist translation team, a specific workflow, and unique quality assurance standards.

Our proven ability to deliver all these points is the reason Pearl Linguistics continues to work so successfully in partnership with leading Patent Attorney Firms in the UK, USA and Europe.

  • Information Technology
