Machine Translation for Legal Cases – Why It’s Usually Not Enough
Technology continues to shape the way we work and interact in global environments. Legal practices are particularly influenced thanks to automated tools like eDiscovery which allow lawyers to search and filter electronic documentation. How does this play into translation? With the help of eDiscovery and a multilingual translator, translation services for international law and compliance cases can be streamlined – but keep in mind the translation process shouldn’t be entirely technical and relying solely on machine translation for legal cases can be problematic.

Black Mist: The Language of Corruption
Bribery and corrupt practices tend to be hard to identify, and when foreign languages are thrown into the mix they can be even more difficult to observe and report.

But what happens if your evidence of corruption is hidden in foreign slang…
The Role of Foreign Language Translation and eDiscovery
Regulatory compliance investigations involving high volumes of documents, regularly have to go through a series of methods in order to determine which materials are most pertinent to the case.
