Machine Translations for Korean Patents

Having found myself needing to quickly understand Korean, I note that a cheap machine translation service is available ($30/23 Euros) – either through the Korean Patent Office (http://eng.kipris.or.kr/eng/main/main_eng.jsp) or the European Patent Office (EPO) (http://www.epo.org/searching/asian/translation/K2E-PAT.html). The EPO’s service looks more user friendly and would probably allow for debiting from a deposit account.

May be useful for those dealing with prior art from an ex-PCT application with a Korean search.
