translators not having technical background.

stuff qualified as Japanese patent attorney and having both technical background and full knowledge on Japanese patent
practice, in order to guarantee correct and proper translations.
Foreign Document Application system
In Foreign Document Application system, it is possible to file a Japanese patent application with English Specification,
Claims Drawings and Abstact, provided Japanese translation is submitted
