Performing same keyword search in old espacenet EN fulltext and new espacenet (NE) gives huge differences in the results.
I guess that is due to the added Asian translations which were rare in old espacenet.
However, you find no clear Information about the loaded Asean fulltext in NE, and the searchable Fulltext coverage Information on related links is more ment for EPOQUE and not for espacenet (yet).
Tried to explore about the e.g. CN searchable Fulltext in new Espacenet and came about 10 M docs.
However I have no idea if this is correct.
Same holds good for KR and JP fulltext.
Can you provide up to date coverage Information on those countries, and about future plans, please?
Thank you

Dear Burkhard,

Thank you for your question. Coverage of new Espacenet should be comparable to that of EPOQUE and hence of old Espacenet as displayed at ... tions.html (Latest bibliographic coverage).The search results can, however, be different due to the indexing of bulk translated documents in new Espacenet, especially for Asian documents. We are in the process of producing data coverage statistics directly related to new Espacenet.
Kind regards
