Streamline instruction to foreign agents and all other administrative tasks.

With a single email, you can initiate a PCT filing with us, reducing your administrative load. We handle the rest, so you can focus your time on other tasks.

Prior art translation

Don’t let prior art slow you down

An International Search Report may turn up prior art that requires translation. Often, this can become a major roadblock. Machine translation may not be the best option, but our Reference Quality translation will satisfy the need without breaking the bank.

 With Questel, you have access to our network of experienced patent translators with advanced degrees in your industry or technology. The result is a clear understanding of any prior art, so you can make better decisions on IP protection. When it comes to translating prior art, we’re a partner you can trust.

Simplify for the Future

Legal document translation

The right words do matter

For more than 30 years, we have helped corporate legal teams and outside counsel with legal document translation while also improving the cost, convenience, and consistency of a translation.

 Legal document translation requires much more expertise than a standard document translation. A linguist qualified to translate legal documents must have a thorough understanding of proper sentence structure and correct syntax and must also be able to select the appropriate word for each use case.

 If your clients are like others in the market, their demands are increasing while their budgets are not. In today’s world, the cost of legal services is substantial. We provide efficient and cost-effective legal translation services for anything from litigation documentation to legal office communications.
