Where can I get an English machine translation of a Korean patent?

The Korean Patent Office (KIPO) offers two tools which provide full-text Korean-to-English machine translations of Korean patent and utility model documents:

  • “Patent Translation”: a free service available via the “Patent search” database in KIPRIS
  • “Korean to English Patent Translation” (K2E-PAT), a fee-based service which you can access via a separate website.

The EPO in Vienna acts as a distributor for the K2E-PAT service, so you can also order your machine translations from us (for prices and further details, see our translation services section).
