Asian Language Translations in PATENTSCOPE

April 5, 2023

In PATENTSCOPE, it is now possible to translate patent documents:

  • from Chinese into Korean
  • from Chinese into Japanese
  • from Japanese into Chinese
  • from Japanese into Korean
  • from Korean into Chinese
  • from Korean into Japanese

Until now, translations in those different language pairs required the use of English as a go-between, leading to potential errors and inaccuracies in the final translation. However, with this new system, translations are made directly from one language to another, improving accuracy and reducing the likelihood of mistakes.

Those translation options are available in PATENTSCOPE using WIPO Translate in the result list and in different parts of the patent documents, and as a stand-alone tool.
