New Cross-Lingual Search Tools in PatBase

Minesoft & RWS Group announce introduction of cross-lingual search tools in PatBase, in co-operation with WIPO, enhancing the patent retrieval in different languages. 

Powered by WIPO’s CLIR system, two complimentary language search tools have been developed for use in PatBase. The first of which, “Language Explorer”, enables researchers to discover more appropriate keyword translations both from and into a range of languages, while the “Term Translator” tool uncovers relevant synonyms in Chinese, Japanese and Korean languages, helping researchers to better utilise the extensive Asian patent literature.
