October 6, 2014 4:46 pm

WIPO-E-RGB1The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) launched a new database WIPO Pearl providing free access to a wealth of multilingual scientific and technical terminology from patent documents.

Through its web-based interface, WIPO Pearl promotes accurate and consistent use of terms across different languages, and makes it easier to search and share scientific and technical knowledge.
The database initially includes terms found in applications filed via WIPO’s Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) and will eventually include collections from other areas of WIPO, such as trademarks, industrial designs, and terminology found in other treaties administered by WIPO.
The 90,000+ terms and 15,000 concepts in 10 languages have all been entered and validated by WIPO-PCT language experts and terminologists.
Key features
  • Ten languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish
  • Classification of concepts by 29 subject fields
  • Fully validated content with reliability scores
  • “Concept maps” that give an innovative graphical display of related concepts by language and subject field
  • Context provided for all terms
  • Term labelling (e.g. “recommended”, “standardized” or “avoid”)
  • Integrated with PATENTSCOPE and CLIR (Cross-Lingual Information Retrieval)
  • Users can rate the quality of results
You can also find WIPO Pearl in our Glossary links.
