Case Study

Iconic delivers integrated Machine Translation solution for the European Patent Office


Business Need

Espacenet, the European Patent Office’s search database, offers free access to more that 80 million patent documents worldwide across multiple languages. The EPO had an urgent need for English-Portguese Machine Translation to be deployed as a secure cloud service and deliver almost instant translations of end-user search results through the Espacenet interface.

They chose Iconic Translation Machines.

The Solution

The English-Portguese Machine Translation system was the very first language of our IPTranslator solution used by our partners today. We worked with the team at the EPO to build and evaluate this system from scratch and deliver it through a beta version of what is now the Iconic API™.

Some Numbers

Over a six month period, Iconic Translation Machines processed thousands of global requests from users of the EPO service and translated more than 16 million words between both English and Portuguese!
