Abstract:


Abstract-We present a method to generate comparable
corpora from different patent documents covering the same
invention. We rely on the fact that many inventors apply for
protection in more than one jurisdictions. Often, these jurisdictions have different publication languages, and therefore, the
same invention is described in more than one language. We
use this fact to generate comparable corpora in any language
pair where patent documents are available. We do this at the
level of the title, abstract, description and claims and present
statistics for English-Spanish data thus generated. We then
show that with an additionalfiltering step we can reduce the
errors inserted in the collection by the automated procedure.
