Foreign Language - ILS

Breaking the Language Barrier

If your case involves international parties, the ILS Team can overcome language barrier hurdles in depositions, foreign language translation, and communicating with and preparing witnesses. Our machine translation provides unsurpassed accuracy and can search documents and files in multiple languages. Our team of human linguists can provide certified translations you can use in court or deposition.

Understandably, foreign corporations tend to maintain databases and documents in their native language and usually do not provide translations to Plaintiffs’ counsel. By combining machine translation with human translators, ILS is fully equipped to manage even the largest foreign language document production that your case demands.

ILS’ linguistics team can work with you and our in-house attorneys and consultants to perform issue building on virtually any foreign language. ILS linguists can work with you and our project managers to produce substantive analyses based on the review of foreign language documents.

Critical Issue Building

Training our advanced technology to find and sort documents according to Client’s Case Themes is called “Issue Building.” In case after case this ILS original has proven to be a critical component for developing the Plaintiff’s case. Once trained, ILS technology searches the entire review platform based on concepts – not keywords – and without limitation to the English language. Each document is scored by its relevance to each issue, enabling us to help you find the critical evidence and classify them by their appropriate issues. The organization and reporting built into our systems will help you better understand the probative value of your evidence. You can use that understanding to better prepare for depositions – filling evidentiary holes and supplementing the documentary evidence. ILS’ unique ability to work with foreign language provides better insights and overcomes barriers that may limit a full understanding of the evidence you receive in defense productions.
