FIZ Karlsruhe partners with Scipat Benelux to translate Asian patent documents into English
- 17 Jan 2017

FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure has announced a partnership with Scipat Benelux B.V., a translation service specialised in patent and business translations, in order to provide FIZ AutoDoc customers with high-quality translations of patent documents. FIZ AutoDoc is FIZ Karlsruhe's document delivery service.

The competitive pressure on international enterprises is steadily increasing. Therefore, innovations are essential for their success. Technical innovations are protected by patents. At present, the number of patent applications in the Far East is significantly increasing. For European enterprises, too, it is extremely important to examine which new technologies have already been protected by others, in order to avoid expensive litigation. However, since initial patent applications are usually registered and published in the language of the applicant's country, they can only be analyzed once they have been professionally translated into English. Machine translations are often faulty and therefore involve risks. In the ambitious field of patent texts, one word alone that has been incorrectly translated can result in serious misinterpretations and thus compromise an enterprise's success. Therefore, the high quality of the translations provided by FIZ AutoDoc together with its partner Scipat constitutes a decisive advantage.

The new translation service has been available to FIZ AutoDoc customers since September 2016. Customers may order translations of entire patent documents or of excerpts thereof, irrespective of whether the document was originally ordered via FIZ AutoDoc or not.

All translations are made by human translators instead of machines. They cover all areas from research, science, technology, and industry. The high quality of the translations is ensured by the fact that Scipat only employs certified translators who are native speakers with a university degree. The patents will be translated from Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Thai, and Vietnamese into English. Translations from other languages are available on request. The standard turnaround time is 3 days from receipt of order.

Thieme ties up with subito to deliver content from e-books
- 18 Feb 2010

STM publisher Thieme Publishing Group, Germany, and library services firm subito, Germany, have initiated a project to jointly develop a document delivery system for e-books. subito offers users copies of articles from periodicals and supports the lending of books.

With the latest alliance, university libraries can make digital book content from Thieme available on reading terminals, and personnel from universities and research institutions can integrate it into their intranets and learning platforms. subito has made its infrastructure available for delivering book content direct from the publisher.

In 2009, more than 40,000 active customers reportedly used subito's document delivery service for journal articles. Service subscribers can now expect to get content from books, published by Thieme, delivered to their computers either page by page or in their entirety. Complete books or select content can thus be licensed, allowing for use that is in accordance with legal requirements.

All available content will be enhanced with extensive metadata, which enables fast and specifically targeted searches for users. The content will be available as high resolution PDF files, thereby eliminating scanning cost for libraries. Ordering and delivery as well as billing will be processed by subito.

The pilot project between subito and Thieme reportedly has clearly defined conditions of use. Within the framework of the collaboration a flexible and unitised pricing system will be developed that is based on groups of users, duration of use and volume of content accessed.

The collaboration to deliver journal articles has now been expanded to include medical and scientific books from Thieme Publishing Group. Both partners will continuously evaluate the project and further develop it in accordance with user needs. The subito service is also available to other publishers.
