Patent Litigation Support

Patent litigation is daunting for even the most experienced legal professionals, but when foreign-language documents are involved, the challenges are even greater. To simplify the process, Morningside offers a full suite of language services to support your case, including foreign language document review, certified translation, machine translation (MT), and interpretation for deposition and trial. We rely on industry-leading technology to organize, filter, and translate foreign language data accurately and efficiently—while also lowering costs and speeding up review times. Morningside’s solutions are customized to your budget, timeline and subject matter—allowing you to focus on your case and leave the translating to us.

Patent Litigation Expertise

Morningside’s global team of patent translators and legal professionals have extensive subject matter expertise and a deep understanding of country-specific legal terminology. Our translators and legal professionals have supported hundreds of patent litigation cases in technologies including biotech, medical devices, software and consumer electronics. In addition to advanced degrees in the technical field at issue, they have experience with all facets of patent litigation and a deep understanding of international patent law.

Certified Document Translation

Top patent linguists perform word-for-word translation of relevant documents identified during the discovery process. These can include business correspondence as well as prior art, product specifications and highly technical documents. We can create scalable, customized solutions for translating thousands of documents based on the size, subject matter, and cost requirements of your case.

Foreign-Language Document Review

Foreign language review requires not just native-level fluency, but also subject matter expertise and familiarity with international patent law. Morningside can deliver a team of trained linguists as well as multilingual attorneys with the expertise your case requires. Morningside’s attorneys and translators can review documents onsite or online, while ensuring security and confidentiality.

Enhanced Machine Translation

Morningside offers enhanced machine translation to help lower costs and accelerate turnaround times. MT allows the case team to get the “gist” of what each document contains, to identify which ones require more accurate human translation. Morningside also offers machine translation with human post-editing in situations where higher quality is needed, but time and budget are limited.


Morningside’s certified legal interpreters are available for arbitration, depositions and courtroom appearances in locations worldwide. Our interpreters are chosen based on their extensive legal experience, language proficiency, and expertise in the relevant subject matter. We also offer confidential over-the-phone and video remote interpretation for legal matters.
