NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - January 27, 2016) - ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale patents disclosing a system for assisting translation by utilizing results from search engines, available from Thinkvillage-OIP, LLC. This portfolio is offered as part of the Winter Patent Catalog and Auction, with a bidding deadline of February 11th, 2016.

"This technology harnesses the power of search engines, and their massive stores of page content, to identify common usage," said Doug Rhoten, Chairman of ICAP Patent Brokerage.

Key Characteristics & Benefits
Formulating sentences or text in a certain language can be very difficult to non-native speakers, or in cases where the appropriate grammar is ambiguous. This portfolio, comprising 3 US assets, discloses systems and methods for determining linguistic preference between two or more phrases by utilizing the power of search engine results. A user may input key components of a phrase, or two phrases for comparison. Context strings may also be provided. The components or phrases are searched and, based on the number of hits (in conjunction with the context), the proper or 'common' usage is derived and displayed to the user. In effect, the billions of web pages indexed by search engines like Google and Bing become a dictionary of common usage. This portfolio is ideal for search engines and/or providers of translation software and services.

See the technical description of the search assisted translation IP sales offering.
