Salt Lake City – MultiLing, a provider of intellectual property (IP) translations and related support services for foreign patent filings, has expanded its operations in Asia, including the opening of a new office in Taiwan and more than doubling its offices in China, Japan and South Korea. The expansion increase’s the company’s office space by more than 270 percent.
According to the World Intellectual Property Indicators 2013, in 2012, for the first time, China accounted for the largest number of patents filed throughout the world with 560,681. In addition, the State IP Office in China accounted for the largest number of applications received by any single IP office worldwide (652,777). Japan ranks second in the number of patents filed, followed by the United States, then South Korea.
“According to a recent study of IP translations, errors in patent applications that open litigation risk are most frequently found when translating patent applications to and from Asian languages,” said Michael Sneddon, founder and chief executive officer, MultiLing. “With our new office in Taiwan, and larger offices in China, Japan and Korea, we’re expanding our Asian region capacity to provide legal teams with the right people, processes and technologies necessary for high-quality translations that reduce related costs, decrease office actions, minimize litigation risks and reduce time to grant.”
