Sentence Length

I know patent applications are generally written in a particular way, but is there any need for a sentence in the original text to be over 220 words long?

Other patent applications I have done have had their components divided into sentences that were readable and understandable, but anything over 200 words cannot make sense – even in the original language.

I would welcome discussion about such mammoth sentences and how other translators have dealt with them.

Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.
