Improve patent search results by removing language barriers
Searching for patents only in English or any other language limits the search results and you end up missing out on several relevant patents. Sagacious IP deploys a dedicated Foreign Language Search team with expertise in 15+ major global languages including Mandarin, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Dutch, Spanish and Italian, allowing you to expand IPR in new markets and conduct more targeted and comprehensive patent searches.
A law firm involved in a patent litigation case was working to invalidate a patent for which they required our assistance. The subject patent was filed in South Korea and had family members across various jurisdictions filed in different languages. Search was formulated to cover all documents published in English and languages other than English that could affect the validity of the subject patent. Using search strategies for Korean, Japanese, Chinese, German and French (native language) keywords, Sagacious IP identified two strong references against the subject patent which were used by the law firm in defending their client in a major infringement case.
