Machine translation and IPC codes in the PATENTSCOPE search system

May 18, 2012

In the search result list, a new button  machine-translation  is available to launch Google Translate. This button is only available if the language of the search results is different from the language of the interface.This button is also available in the description, claims and full-text tabs: clicking on it will display not only the Google Translate option but also an “Alternative machine translation” button  which allows users to select another machine translation tool, for example Microsoft Translator.
A question mark has been added next to the IPC code. Hovering the mouse over it will display information related to the IPC code.
