10.078.   In what language is the international preliminary report on patentability (Chapter II of the PCT) established?  Are translations prepared?  The international preliminary report on patentability (Chapter II of the PCT) and any annexes are established in the language in which the international application is published – see paragraphs 9.017 to 9.020) – except where the international preliminary examination is carried out on the basis of a translation (see paragraphs 5.013, 10.011 and 10.013), in which case the international preliminary report on patentability (Chapter II of the PCT) and annexes are established in the language of that translation.  Each elected State may require that the report, if it is not in (one of) the official language(s) of its national Office, be translated into English.  If this is the case, the translation of the body of the report is prepared by the International Bureau, which transmits copies to the applicant and to each interested elected Office.  If any elected Office requires a translation of annexes to the report, the preparation and furnishing of that translation is the responsibility of the applicant.
