Included in the new patent agencies for Google Patent are China, German, Canada, and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

With the database now including other documents from around the world, Google will be integrating Google Translate directly into the patent pages.  With this feature, you’ll be able to see the patent not only in the original language, but in English as well.
