Patent Translation Specialist

Premium-quality translations of patents, matters before the EPO Opposition Division.

Recipient of the 2017 S. Edmund Berger Prize for Excellence in Scientific and Technical Translation

I am a US Patent and Trademark Office Registered Patent Agent.

I am an expert in the domains of physics, astronomy, organic chemistry (pharmaceutical and cosmetic products and compositions) and mathematics, and also telecommunications. I have a broad working knowledge in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

I have translated over 320 French and European patents and I have translated briefs and arguments presented to the European Patent Office Opposition Division and Boards of Appeal and decisions issued by them. Therefore I have particular experience with the writing styles and conventions used in preparing French and European patent applications, and used in arguing their merits. I have in-depth knowledge of relevant sections of the European Patent Convention and French Code du propriété industriel and I am a USPTO Registered Patent Agent.

I focus on translating the following types of documents:

  • patents and patent applications—over 320 translated
  • patent related documents involving prosecution, opposition and infringement (prior art, filings, pleadings, briefs, notices, office actions, opinions of the search authority and court and administrative minutes and decisions)
  • reports by court-appointed experts
  • scientific and pharmaceutical journal articles—over 34 translated
  • clinical trial protocols, informed consent forms, case report forms, reports of severe adverse events and correspondence
  • research and laboratory notebooks
  • procurement (bidding, tender and contract) documents
  • feature and product specifications

AB, magna cum laude, 1979 Cornell University, Physics
Ph.D. 1985 Harvard University, Astronomy
