What is a patent?

A patent, or patent, gives someone the exclusive right to make or sell a product or exploit an invention. The patent grants you the intellectual property of this invention. A patent allows the owner to prohibit other people from commercially exploiting his or her invention. In most countries, a patent is valid for up to twenty years after the application is filed. Also, patent taxes must be paid to maintain the patent during these twenty years.

To claim a patent, you must meet three conditions:

  • The invention must be new
  • The invention must not be "obvious
  • The invention must have industrial applicability

Why a sworn translation of your patent?

If you want your patent to be legally valid abroad, you need a sworn translation. Your Dutch patent is only valid in the Netherlands. It is therefore extremely important to ensure that your invention is also protected abroad. Before you know it, someone abroad will make off with your intellectual property.

If you want to submit a patent application for several European countries, you can do so at the European Patent Office. However, the patent should then be validated per country. If German, English or French are spoken nationally in the country concerned, then these languages are acceptable. In countries where this is not the case, you need a sworn translation into the national language. If this translation is not sworn, it will not be approved.

Beëdigd Vertaalbureau can help you with the sworn translation of the patent into any language. For each language we have a true professional in our network who will provide you with a high quality, legally valid translation.
