A lesson by Gabriel Karandysovsky.
The Intellectual Property (IP) rights management business is probably the multi-billion-dollar industry you have never heard of. Be that as it may, it should come as no surprise that managing IP rights is an operation that has a finger in every pie: Companies big and small across all sectors are regularly filing new patents to safeguard their innovations. And they are not doing this in just one country, but on a global scale. From this perspective, it is easy to understand just how important it can be to translate patents.
Enter Dennemeyer, one of the heavyweights of the IP landscape. The company was founded almost 60 years ago in Luxembourg but has since grown to have offices in over 20 countries across six continents. Initially a patent law firm, Dennemeyer fleshed out its portfolio over time with a string of complementary acquisitions and built its proprietary IP software solution, DIAMS Suite, to become a service provider addressing the entire chain of IP management. The technology-driven company pursues what they refer to as a "glocal" strategy — offering worldwide representation to clients regardless of their language and time zone.
Nimdzi spoke with Gabriel Corbescu, Coordinator of the Translation Management Department at Dennemeyer, about the role translation plays in the grander scheme of managing IP rights for global clients.
In what is a highly regulated environment, Dennemeyer maintains a human-centric approach to translation. The team much prefers subject-matter expertise at the core of a tailored process over the widely sought-after but still immature machine translation (MT) solution.
Automate, automate, automate: The previous point does not mean the translation team is tech-averse; quite the opposite. It always seeks innovative ways to spend less time on day-to-day minutiae and devote more effort toward internal alignment.
Founded in 2014, Bitso was Mexico’s first cryptocurrency exchange, facilitating the transfer of Bitcoin, pesos, and US dollars. The company now handles an additional 28 cryptocurrencies and is growing rapidly: after amassing one million users over six years, Bitso has quadrupled its member base within the past 24 months. In addition to its popularity in Mexico, the company operates in Argentina, Brazil, and El Salvador, and is planning to launch in Columbia within the next month.
Slack is where the future works — an ambitious headline from a company that has been making waves redefining how we communicate at work. Now part of the Salesforce family, Slack certainly isn’t afraid of taking on big ideas. Restructuring your work life. Simplifying teamwork. Allowing users to focus on what truly matters. Pushing the envelope when it comes to localization.
