Law/Patents
German term or phrase: dadurch gekennzeichnet, dass
I am translating the 'Ansprüche' section of a patent document for flexible packaging. Each paragraph starts:
'Flexible Verpackung dadurch gekennzeichnet, dass'..... Is there a correct phrase in English for this patent terminology?

English translation:characterized in that
Explanation:
The patent lawyers I translate for prefer the above term. You can verify that by looking at the English patents that are posted on the net.

characterized by the fact that


Explanation:
U.S. patents don't really have an equivalent phrasing for this, but each instance of this phrase legally means "this is a patentable property of this object or process." Most translations I've read render the phrase as "characterized by the fact," or some similar device.
