Machine Translations for Non-Latin Text
As of March 2011, PatBase Express does have an option for viewing non-Latin text. For Chinese and Japanese documents, an English-language machine translation is displayed beside the original-language non-Latin text.
Translation options are also displayed directly above the non-Latin text. The user can choose to translate the text to English (via the internal PatBase translation tool), or the user can choose to translate the text to a wide range of languages (listed in a drop-down menu) through the Google Translate tool.
The translation will be displayed directly in the full-text viewing screen for both internal translations and Google translations. As described in the Machine Translations section, the internal translation tool appears to generate a side-by-side view of the English and non-English versions of the text.
The Google Translation tool produces a view of the text only in the selected output language (although the user can mouse over the translated text to view the original-language version of the text).
Google Translate provides a much longer list of language translation options than the internal translation tool, which can only translate the non-Latin text to English.
