A new machine translation tool is now available in PATENTSCOPE

March 18, 2011

The tool developed in-house at WIPO uses Moses open-source technology and has been specifically trained with bilingual corpuses of text from the patent field, taking account of the International Patent Classification (IPC). It allows users to translate the titles and abstracts of inventions from English to French and Chinese and vice versa. Other language pairs, notably Korean-English and Japanese-English are being studied.
The selected text is sub-divided into several segments for which the tool suggests alternative translations so that the user can select the best available translation.
