Full text keyword strings search

For certain technologies, full text keyword string search would be more appropriate. For example, if we lookup for a cell phone with a proximity sensor, we would consider a full text keyword approach first because the term of “proximity sensor” in Japanese is very unique; almost everybody would use the same term to describe this feature. However, because of the high noise of full text keywords, we usually would use either a wide F-term class or wide F-index, or wide IPC class as a filter to reduce the search noise.

Search strings for “proximity sensor” in Japanese:
FK=近接センサー + 接近センサー + 近接感知 + 接近感知 + 近接検出 + 接近検出

If the full text search produces too high a noise, we may lookup claims and abstracts, but usually we do not focus on for titles and abstracts, because we consider such titles and abstracts are too narrow.



Thank you kindly for the speedy delivery. I will be sure to advise the client of your remarks regarding the translation. I will also make sure that the reviewer has this information available. I can’t say thank you enough. You have done a great job.
