WIPO Translate is the extended version of the former TAPTA tool which was developed in-house for the translation of patent titles and abstracts of patent documents.
The good results obtained by the TAPTA technology in other UN agencies for administrative documents, as well as the relevant results obtained for the translation of patent abstracts and titles, led to the extension of the tool for the translation of other parts of patent documents; the tool was therefore renamed WIPO Translate.
It is now possible to translate the search result list in PATENTSCOPE, as well as description and claims in Chinese, using WIPO Translate. Users wishing to use it have to activate it in the “Options” menu, under the “Translate” tab.
The translation of description, claims and full-text in other languages will be available in the future.
