PATENTSCOPE® Provides Machine Translation of Descriptions and Claims of Patent Documents

by Brian Fletcher on August 9, 2010

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) is reporting here that thanks to a better integration of Google Translate within PATENTSCOPE ®, it is now possible to translate the description and claims of patent documents in all languages supported by Google Translate.  The PATENTSCOPE® Search Service enables users to do full-text search in over 1.7 million published international patent applications from the first publication in 1978.

Combined with cross-lingual expansion of search queries and with the possibility to machine translate titles and abstracts in result lists, PATENTSCOPE ® users have now a cross-language solution at their disposal to:

(1) enter search keywords

(2) select appropriate synonyms

(3) execute an enriched boolean search query in all languages

(4) browse the results list

(5) consult the description and claims for each interesting hit (when available)

Follow this link to start using these great PATENTSCOPE ® features.

I think that we cannot rely on machine translation in most cases, because it lacks accuracy.
