Yes. I get the claim and description that is shown on espacenet.
Otherwise you have to get the B1 PDF file, somehow translate it to
ascii, and grab the relevant parts from that which is complicated as
the PDFs sometimes are scanned so you would need to do OCR.

I don't think there is a solution, but the A documents should be
sufficient to classify if a patent is swpat or not, and what type of
application could infringe it.

No. But FFII has some efforts in that direction, but I can't remember
where they put it on the site.
