What language must I use for a Taiwanese patent application?

Under Article 25 of the Taiwan Patent Act, Taiwanese patent applications (title, claims, description, abstract and drawings) can be filed in a language other than Chinese. However, a Chinese translation printed in traditional Chinese characters must be submitted within a specified period. According to the Implementation Regulations Governing Foreign-language Patent Applications, the languages currently accepted are Arabic, English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
