Paris Convention (Direct): Filing directly via the Paris Convention can be a hectic, last minute process. In jurisdictions where a translation is required, we partner with you by starting the translation in tandem with your drafting process. We update translations as you update your application. Your filing is ready on time even if your scientists are not. After the initial filing is complete, we apprise you of next steps and special requirements in a variety of popular direct filing jurisdictions so that you never lose protection on a technicality.
Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT): We shoulder the burden of translation work for you during multinational PCT filings. We keep track of translation requirements, filing deadlines, and available extensions in over 80 PCT member states. Provide us a country list, and we’ll put together a comprehensive delivery plan that meets your deadlines and your filing requirements. Our patents are delivered according to the formatting and file type requirements of each PTO.
European Patent Validation (EP): When your European patent application is granted, simply provide Park IP your list of the chosen jurisdictions. We provide translations that meet the filing requirements in all member states. Moreover, our proofreaders bring additional expertise to the review process when they identify a possible error. For example, translations are to be based on the source document, which is the originally published patent application. Our expert proofreaders review the translation against the text intended for grant in the communication under Rule 71/(3). This ensures the translations are accurate to the legally recognized patent text. Additionally, when Park IP manages your patent translation process, we use smart technology to reference translations from previous filing stages to ensure quality assurance, terminology consistency, and process efficiency. The benefits are higher productivity and cost management.
