Fetch claim in specific language

Post by eltermann » Mon Aug 29, 2016 9:08 pm

Regarding published document EP1932704.B1:

When inquiring full-text availability [1], we get to know the existence of claims content in three languages: English, German and French.

However, when retrieving the actual claims page [2], only content in English is available.

Is it possible to access claims information in other languages?

Hi,

OPS currently supplies descriptions and claims for documents published by the following authorities: WO (only if published in English, French or German), AT, CH, GB, ES, CA and EP which you already mentioned.

I would like to take this opportunity to point again everyone who needs information about OPS to our FAQ page available on the website: https://www.epo.org/searching-for-paten ... s/faq.html

Regards,
OPS support

Thank you for the response.

However, my question is not regarding to data coverage. I already found the document I'm interested. I just want to be able to fetch content in a language different than English.

FAQ does not cover this subject. I was also not able to find this in OPS PDF documentation.

Hi,

In the current production version this is not possible.
Although claims actually would exist in 3 languages for B EP's (Link 1) you will only even get one set of claims (Link 2):

Link 1:
http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/pu ... 1/fulltext
Link 2:
http://ops.epo.org/3.1/rest-services/pu ... .B1/claims

But in our the new 3.2 version,soon to be available as BETA, you will get all three language claims in one response and then you can just keep a language version(s) that you need

Start of the 3.2 BETA will be announced soon in our Announcements section of this OPS forum.

Regards,
OPS support
