WIPO site Dec 13, 2007

You can find patent information at the site for the World Intellectual Property Organizastion:

Typically one finds a PDF facsimile and OCR text, but be careful with the OCR text, because the work is very sloppy and has a lot of errors like line numbers accidentally scanned into the text. No MS Word files there as far as I know, sorry.

In the EPO site Dec 14, 2007

In the EPO site you can access the patent database in several languages.

also in Turkish:

Then you can select EPO as the database to search.

As Kevin said, in this database (like in almost all other patent databases I know and use) you can only download PDFs. But with a good OCR software this is not a specially difficult task.
