MultiLing is Sponsor of Germany’s Longest Running Inventor Award

For the second time, MultiLing is an official Sponsor of DIESELMEDAILLE, Germany’s longest running inventor award. With its strong focus on patent related translations this events represents an ideal surrounding for the brand MultiLing. DIESELMEDAILLE was co-founded by Eugen Diesel, son of the engine designer Rudolf Diesel, in 1952. Since that time, DIESEL gold medals have been awarded to approximately 400 inventors, including several Nobel Prize winners such as Herrmann Staudinger, Jan Enders, Ernst Ruska and Manfred Eigen. Among the first to receive the prize was scientist Wernher von Braun. The list of awarded persons also includes the founders of the world-wide software company SAP, Dietmar Hopp, Hasso Plattner and Klaus E. Tschira, as well as German entrepreneurs like Anthon Kathrein (antenna technology) and Fritz Sennheiser (audio acoustics).

The ceremony for DIESELMEDAILLE 2012 will be held on November 30 at the renowned Deutsche Museum in Munich, the world’s largest technology and science museum. The judges will award four DIESEL medals in the following categories: best innovation, most sustainable innovation, best innovation funding and best media communication. The winners will be announced during a ceremony attended by 200 selected guests.

Michael Sneddon, CEO of MultiLing, who will participate in the event, announced today that he is proud to be a sponsor of this outstanding event again: “Because of his strong focus on patent translation, MultiLing is highly involved in the worldwide innovation process. All our offices in the USA, Japan, China, Korea, Italy and Peru have a strong focus on patent related translations and serve several large companies in this particular field. They choose MultiLing because we use a unique centralized translation model and we guarantee a maximum level of translation quality, which is inevitable in patent translation.”
