Foreign Filing Technology Leader inovia Launches German Language Website

New Version of Corporate Website to Help German Speaking Clients, Partners and Prospects Keep Up with inovia Products and Services

inovia, the leading foreign filing platform provider, has launched a new version of its corporate website in German. The first in a series of native-language micro-sites to be rolled out this year, the German version will help inovia communicate more effectively with clients, prospects and partners in the local German market and with German speakers throughout the world.

Like the English version of the corporate site, the German version will be full of helpful information and resources to aid companies, law firms and universities in navigating the complexities of Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) national stage entry, European patent validation and patent translation work. On the site, German speakers can access helpful guides to the PCT national stage entry and European validation processes, find useful product and client service information, and explore inovia’s robust network of agents across the globe.

“Providing a translation of the existing inovia website tailored for the German market will go a long way in helping effectively communicate the value inovia brings to both the local and global legal community,” said Wolfgang Danner, Senior Director of Business Development at inovia and Head of the Munich Office. “Behind the United States and Japan, Germany ranked third in the world for PCT filings, making it an important and strategic market for offering a global instruction platform to help offset the time and expense required for foreign patent filing.”

In addition to ranking third in the world for PCT filings, Germany files more PCT applications than any other country in Europe – 15,000 a year, which is on par with the U.S. per capita.
