Internal system

In order to provide the best translation services to our clients, our office has established the following system in consideration of the special nature of translation related to intellectual property.


Internal processing system

Translating documents related to intellectual property not only requires accuracy of content, but also requires being aware of rights and using the most appropriate terminology and expressions backed by legal knowledge. Furthermore, specialized knowledge in each field of intellectual property is essential, such as technical understanding, which is essential when translating patent and utility model related documents such as claims and specifications.

By consistently performing translation work in-house, our office has translation staff specializing in intellectual property-related translations, patent attorneys, technical staff, and trademark/design staff with specialized knowledge of intellectual property. We work closely together to create the most suitable translated documents.


Emergency response system

Intellectual property work, like any other business, requires speed, and we often encounter time constraints such as the first-to-file system and deadlines for various procedures. Therefore, translations related to intellectual property sometimes require extremely urgent action.

Our office has approximately 40 translation staff, including foreign staff, so we can quickly respond to urgent requests.
