Professional practices Tobias Ernst endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I am the head of a team of seasoned English-to-German patent translators. Personally, I hold degrees in physics and translation, have 15 years of experience in patent translation and have received three years of legal/IP training.

Our team offers high-quality patent translations from English to German that are ready to file, such as translations under § 35a PatG or claims translations in response to R. 71(3) EPC.

I review all translations personally prior to delivery. We work primarily with direct clients, such as patent law firms, patent attorneys and the like. Please contact me for a personalized offer.

I also offer patent translations and legal translations from Ukrainian and Russian into German. These translations are carried out by myself personally.
