Japanese Patent Applications can be translated to English by EPO’s Automatic Machine Translation


Today EPO and the Japan Patent Office (JPO) announced the launch of the Japanese-English component of the EPO’s automatic translation service Patent Translate. This is a very good news for patent applicants and inventors across the globe as they can now easily translate the patent published in Japanese language. Numerous Japanese patent specifications available via the EPO’s global patent database Espacenet (www.epo.org/espacenet) can now be translated into English at zero cost to the applicant.

Recently, EPO and Google have been working together for sometime now to provide translation service optimised for patent specifications. Currently, patent translate covers translations between English and 15 other languages, namely Chinese, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish. In the time to come more languages will be added to the database.
