Machine Translation of Patent Documents
Other project within the bilateral co-operation between the Industrial Property Office of SR and the European Patent Office (EPO) is aimed at patent documents translations.
The IPO SR provides translated patent documents necessary for machine translation of the Patent Translate Service within the project European Language Translation Service for Patents (ELTS).
In 2011 the IPO SR sent the data since 1993 to the EPO to get the best results. At present translations in PDF format are being sent monthly.
In accordance with the time schedule of the project the Office expects the testing package of translated texts to control the quality of translations in 2013. In the end of 2014 the Slovak Language shall be incorporated into the Patent Translate.
Currently the Patent Translate translates documents into fourteen European Languages and Chinese Language. It is available via Espacenet or European publication server.
