FCPA Translation and legal translation services for regulatory compliance cases are more important than ever. As most companies with an international footprint are already aware, there has been a significant growth in the number of FCPA cases brought against organizations. In 2016, the DOJ has accelerated its capacity to investigate and prosecute FCPA violations by increasing the size of its prosecutor unit by more than 50%, adding 3 new squads of special FBI agents devoted to FCPA investigations and prosecutions, and introducing a pilot program motivating self-disclosure of FCPA misconducts by companies. This comes at the same time that it is strengthening its cooperation with its foreign counterparts.
As a result, there has been an increasing need for affected companies to develop proactive and efficient strategies to process foreign language documents – whether they take the form of intra and inter-company emails, Codes of Conduct, or charters and other corporate foundation materials. Partnering with a legal translation company that has FCPA translation expertise and that also understands the specifics of the eDiscovery review process has become increasingly critical. A proper FCPA translation partner will allow companies to ensure accurate and reliable legal translation services for necessary materials while controlling costs.
