Derwent translations are built on:


Derwent are patent experts who truly understand innovation and the importance of protecting it. Our translators are technology professionals who only translate patent documents – nothing else. They are well-versed in the terminology of innovation and the nuances associated with patent literature.


Poorly translated documents can weaken a patent’s protective power and cause process delays – often resulting in financial penalties. There are legal implications in the wording of patent claims, in particular, so quality control and attention to detail are critical throughout the process.


A single provider can deliver both time and financial savings. Administration is simplified with one billing process and one single point of contact.

Communication is more streamlined – with critical information being shared between translation teams in good time. We also liaise with filing agents to assist with operational, delivery and deadline issues that may arise. Filings in jurisdictions with a shared common language could also result in further savings to translation costs.


Derwent™ translates patents across all the required major languages. Furthermore, our fast turnaround times help you to respond confidently to Office Actions – by highlighting the underlying arguments of foreign examiners.


We provide a detailed scope of works, including a list of contact points and charges at the start of every engagement – so you know exactly what to expect when working with our teams. We pride ourselves on delivering a reliable, confidential service of the highest quality.
