In June of 2009, Questel released a beta collection of full text English machine translations of Chinese (CN) patent documents. In July of 2009, the collection data had been fully loaded and extended back to 1985. The collection includes published applications, granted patents, and utility models.
According to QPat representatives, a collection of front page images and in-text (or embedded) images for these documents was being loaded into the system as of June 2009.
As China increases in importance in the world of intellectual property, English machine translations of this patent collection are becoming much more necessary. Although other search providers are offering some English-language Chinese data, Questel is one of the few to offer a full text machine-aided collection. One competitor is Thomson Innovation, which offers machine-aided translation for CN titles, abstracts, and claims.
