Thomson Reuters Introduces Japanese Language Patent Service

Nov 16, 2010

The IP Solutions business of Thomson Reuters is showing off the upcoming Japanese Language Search functionality in Thomson Innovation, the company's intellectual property research and analysis program. The Japanese search capability will be publicly available in December and will let researchers search Japanese patent documents in Japanese and seamlessly link to global patent content for comprehensive research.

Japanese customers will gain access to a streamlined workflow when searching in their native language, as well as accessing worldwide data in a single interface. The offering will enable them to begin research locally and expand globally to other content sets, and collaborate with global colleagues within the platform.

The Japanese Language Search functionality gives users access to Thomson Reuters' proprietary patent database and the Derwent World Patents Index (DWPISM). Searchers are able to view DWPI information within their Japanese-language search results and on patents.
