To make a European patent valid nationally requires a validation process. Whether you have a large patent portfolio or a small one, you need someone with specialized knowledge to assist you. We are that someone.

The basics
English, German and French are the three official patent languages. Countries that do not have any of these as a national language have to fulfill different requirements. For some countries parts of the patent must be translated into the official local language, for some not. When your European patent has issued, you have three months to file a translation to make it valid nationally. The validation process requires specialized knowledge of formalities, filing requirements and language, as well as capacity and seamless routines.
