This paper aims to provide the direction of patent translational system and how to improve its system by analyzing the importance of intellectual property based on literature reviews and Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) reports. Additionally, the demand of patent translational system is hugely increasing due to globalization and recognizing of the importance of intellectual property such as patent. As an example, many companies have faced the patent litigation and the number of cases has risen. Current patent translation system has been developed and it is helpful, but still shows the limitation and problem in terms of time, cost, and various language barriers. Nevertheless, patent translational system should be constructed and more improvement based on accuracy; otherwise, it becomes worthless. This paper focuses on the reason of patent translational system, the limitation of current system, and the direction of improvement.
