If the international application has been published by the IB in an official language of the EPO, no translation is required and any translation that is nevertheless filed will be ignored, since the language of the proceedings may not be changed upon entry into the European phase (see point 423).
OJ 2010, 572
On the question of whether a translation of the priority document must be submitted, reference is made to points 638 ff.
