The TIPONet portal is currently only available in Chinese language, but the search interface and the list of documents in the file can now be displayed in English. Among the documents in the file, the application form and the electronic application are available in text format and can thus be machine-translated. Other communications during the examination procedure are available as facsimile. The complete file can now also be downloaded in one PDF document.
A step-by-step search guide showing how to access a Taiwanese file wrapper and display the English machine translation is available on the EPO's "virtual helpdesk" on Asian patent information.
