New collaboration between the EPO and Russia on machine translation
Last week, the European Patent Office (EPO) and the Federal Service for Intellectual Property (Rospatent) signed an agreement that will allow the two organisations to exchange patent documents in Russian and English with the purpose to build text corpora to be used in EPO’s Patent Translate service.
According to EPO President Benoît Battistelli “the information function of patents cannot be rated high enough. Innovation is a global market, and by making their respective collections of patent documents accessible to researchers, scientists and inventors in Russian and English, the EPO and Rospatent significantly contribute to strengthening the innovation process both in their regions and at worldwide level. Especially small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as research institutions, stand to benefit from this improved access to information on new technologies.”
