Solutions for Business

Our Business Solutions Division supports leading organizations, large and small, in communicating effectively with multicultural consumers, partners and employees. In addition to the professional translation services resulting in distribution-ready foreign language content, we offer ancillary services to meet diverse requirements, including:

  • “For Information Only” translation. When publication quality is not what you’re looking for or if your in-house linguists who would otherwise do the job simply can’t handle the volume within your timeline, MLS provides a solution by producing high volume, unedited translations to move the process along.
  • Proofreading & Editing. MLS provides support in addressing the perennial challenge of ensuring quality when working with multiple translation vendors or when your needs include translation into multiple languages. MLS implements industry-leading quality control protocols and provides objective analysis of the quality of translations prepared by clients’ internal or third party linguists.
  • Document Analysis, Gisting & Abstracting. When dealing with a large volume of documents in a foreign language, identifying which are most relevant for your needs is a daunting challenge. Armed with key terms, MLS linguists carefully sift through the volume, either remotely or on-site, and identify relevant documents and preparing abstracts where necessary.

Patent Translation Services

Patent translation is a highly technical and specialized form of translation. In order to be able to produce an accurate and legally sound translation, it is essential to use a patent translation service that employs experienced and knowledgeable translators. Patent law can vary significantly from one country to another, so it is important to ensure that the translator is familiar with the relevant laws in both the source and target countries. Additionally, the translator should have a solid understanding of patent terminology and be able to render complex concepts accurately in the target language. By using a reputable patent translation service, you can be confident that your translations will be of the highest quality and will meet all legal requirements.
