6.019. What are the translation requirements if the request is in a language which is not a language of publication accepted by the receiving Office for the purpose of filing the request? Whatever the language in which the description and claims are filed, the request must always be filed in a language of publication accepted by the receiving Office for the purposes of filing the request. If the request is in a language which does not fulfill this requirement, the receiving Office invites the applicant to file a translation that complies with it.
