Hi, I have an enourmously large patent document about diaper production technology and this text drives me almost crazy because I cannot ask the customer anything, there are only 13 days left for 62000 words and above all this is a VIP client of the agency I am working for. Normally no problem, but with this text I have only half speed as usual in addition. Several times I begged for being able to ask questions because it is simply impossible to translate patents without having the possibility to ask, but to no avail, since there are too many mediators in between and the customer anyway has the opinion that "we are the experts who must to know how what is translated".

I am searching and asking everywhere to find any source for this most complicated technology I ever had (and I come from the field of paper printing presses which means I even have lots of experience with related technologies), but these terms are not to find anywhere and I can only hope that here is anybody who ever saw any source where information about this complicated field is somehow at least to see in English, if not in English and German.

Maybe a stupid suggestion... Jul 11, 2016

Have you searched using the British English equivalent term: nappy/nappies?

Ask a KudoZ question? Jul 11, 2016

Pick one term and ask a KudoZ question, perhaps there will be people out there either familiar with the terminology or able to find resources.

Depending on confidentiality requirements, can you show us a simple passage from the file, with terms you find problematic?

Also hoping I'm not stating the obvious... Jul 11, 2016

Maybe you could search for terms in https://patents.google.com or other patent directories.

In fact I am inventor myself and know these directories, but for diapers I did not find any document in German so far.
