In keeping with our 2019 content roadmap, many new full text records are now available, along with translations to English using Google Translate. Since the beginning of the year 1.4 million documents covering 14 new countries and patent authorities have been added to our global patent database, bringing the total to 38 entities. Three more will be added before the end of the year, bringing our full-text coverage to 41 patent authorities. These records are available to Premium+ subscribers. See more details below.
Our changeover to using Google Translate for translation of the 48 languages found in CLAIMS Direct is well underway. Front file patent records (new incoming documents) for all publications in a language other than English are now live, covering 32 countries. This neural network technology offers the most reliable machine translations available on the market today.
Backfile records (existing publications) are available for all the new countries we’ve just added to CLAIMS Direct.
Patents related to flying car AeroMobil 4.0* are available in our newly acquired Slovakian data
