The availability of patent and non-patent literature from Asian countries in English language is limited. Such Asian countries as China, Japan, and Korea are considered as a hub of innovation and have witnessed a lot of patent filing activity in the recent years. Many of the patent and non-patent documents originating from these jurisdictions do not have English language translations or counterpart(s). For an effective patent search, it is essential to cover prior art documents (patent & non-patent) from these jurisdictions.
Machine translations are preferred to identify relevant references from these jurisdictions but the search is limited as most of the times the relevant data is not captured. Thus, there is a need to conduct manual search on databases that are specific to the patents in the respective languages.
We help you in performing searches in native language databases using respective native language queries. We have in-house team of native experts of both experienced managers and patent analysts to perform searches in native languages.
