WIPO Translate Now Available for Bibliographic Data and Long Japanese and French Documents

WIPO Translate, the machine translation tool developed by WIPO and available within the PATENTSCOPE user interface, now offers translation of full‑length documents into Japanese and French from English, and vice versa.  This feature was introduced last year for long Chinese texts.

It is recalled that WIPO Translate also offers translation of bibliographic data from/to any of the following languages: German, English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Chinese.  Bibliographic data in languages other than English will first be translated into English and then into any of the languages supported.  It is, for example, now possible to translate bibliographic data in Chinese into Russian using WIPO Translate.

As for previous versions, WIPO translate has been trained exclusively on patent texts and operated with a secure https protocol. Note that independent evaluation tools show that it is more accurate than other publicly available solutions and, as a result, users can get a better, clearer idea of the nature of an invention than may be possible with external translation tools.
