Three new languages available in CLIR

January 26, 2012

Dutch, Italian and Swedish are now available in beta mode in CLIR (Cross-Lingual Information Retrieval), the multilingual tool of the PATENTSCOPE search system. This brings to 12 the number of languages available in CLIR. It is recalled that CLIR finds synonyms of the search query before translating both the search query and the retrieved synonyms into 11 languages, expanding therefore the scope of patent search.
