RWS, the world's leading provider of translation, intellectual property, life sciences and language support services, today announces a re-launch of its brand, website and divisional structure following a number of successful acquisitions which have significantly extended the group’s capabilities and geographical reach. This updated look and feel reflects the new shape of the business and its client offering:
  • RWS Patent Translation & Filing
  • RWS Patent Information
  • RWS Life Sciences
  • RWS Language Solutions
RWS Patent Translation & Filing offers the translation of patents and supporting intellectual property documents in over 200 language pairs and the management of multi-jurisdictional patent filing, supported by international web-based filing platform, inovia. It translates well over 80,000 patents and intellectual property related documents each year, with over 500 million words translated last year alone. RWS Patent Information delivers a comprehensive range of patent search and monitoring services, enabling clients to assess whether their intellectual property is novel, valid for a patent application or risks infringing upon existing patents. PatBase, jointly developed by RWS and Minesoft, is one of the world’s largest searchable commercial patent databases covering over 57 million patent families. RWS Life Sciences has 25 years’ experience in providing clients with high quality life sciences translations and linguistic validation. Following the acquisition of two dominant life sciences language services brands, Corporate Translations Inc. (CTi) and LUZ, RWS is now a global market leader in life sciences translation. Its expanded product offering includes comprehensive translation capabilities for all pharmaceutical, regulatory, medical device and linguistic validation needs. An extended global footprint gives access to the most highly skilled linguists, project managers, editors, multi-media professionals and customer service associates - all supported by enhanced technology. RWS Language Solutions translates specialist documents, from technical specifications and manuals to sensitive legal and financial documents. Work in this area includes the localisation of materials to ensure they are linguistically and culturally appropriate, convey the tone of clients’ brands and are in line with local regulations in multiple target markets. Richard Thompson, Chief Executive of RWS commented: “RWS has been an industry leader for 60 years. These organizational changes will enable each of the company’s divisions to share best practice across its operating units, which will enhance customer service and operational efficiency. "The refresh of our brand and website reflects the truly global service offering that RWS now represents and will help support us in the next phase of our growth and development.” To find out more about RWS and its services, explore the new company website:
