CLIR tool, speacilised software based on statistics to enhance the qualities of patent documents searches.

The quality of patent searches depends upon the quality of the queries one is able to realise. For that a new facility of the PATENTSCOPE® Search system-, has been included in its beta mode for public testing.

CLIR allows to enhance searchs in PCT and National Patent Data Collections. The  search query will be translated at best by a special software developed by WIPO into several other languages based on statistical analysis of patent documents and terminologies. In this way CLIR opens up a new way to carrying out multiple linguistic search of patent databases in different languages and will significantly improve access to patent information throughout the world. Currently, cross-lingual search is available in the following languages:

English, French, German, Portugues, Danish, Japanese, Spanish,  Russian, Chinese, Korean, Italian, Swedich, Dutch, Polich.
