Regarding ‘Italy isolated as ten countries unite on patents‘:
Today, most technical and commercial communications are in English, while an inventor’s mother tongue is their most precise communication tool.
Why not combine the two (the inventor’s usual language + English) in a two-column layout where paragraphs in one language are aligned next to the other. This would maintain a good place for all European languages while allowing information sharing.
