Service will supplement the Autonomy eDiscovery product, allowing reviewers to quickly and easily read documents originally written in a language in which they are not fluent
PRLog - Jul 23, 2013 - PORTLAND, Ore. -- VIA and its specialty division, VIA Legal, a leading provider of accurate and efficient legal translation, today announced that it has integrated its legal translation service into the HP Autonomy eDiscovery offering. As a result, HP Autonomy eDiscovery customers can have a central team read all documents in a review, not just those written in a language in which they are fluent.
The review process accounts for 60 percent of the costs of eDiscovery in traditional cases, and the addition of foreign language documents adds a layer of complexity that can make prices go up and deadlines slip. Integrating an efficient and effective solution for translating large volumes of foreign language content to be reviewed by legal professionals in their native language provides organizations with measurable time and cost savings.
Drawing on years of legal translation expertise in over 125 languages around the globe, VIA incorporates specific key terms and phrases that improve the accuracy and increase the efficiency of the machine translation to provide organizations with fast translation of their foreign language content. This workflow will integrate seamlessly to provide customers with direct access to review English versions of translated foreign language case materials.
The Autonomy eDiscovery product is built on the IDOL platform, which can uniquely access, understand, and analyze large collections of data, regardless of the language in which documents are written. The VIA service supplements these capabilities by extending language independence to the review team itself.
"Over the years VIA has developed a specialized expertise to serve the legal translation and compliance needs of global businesses," said Chanin Ballance, CEO, VIA. "We look forward to working with HP Autonomy to serve its customers by translating their legal content through our machine and legal translation solutions."
"In the global information landscape, we see chief legal officers, chief compliance officers and general counsel under intense pressure to deal with multiple lawsuits, regulatory reporting requests, mergers and acquisitions, and other pressing legal and compliance matters in multiple languages and countries," said Mike Sullivan, general manager, Protect, HP Autonomy. "VIA’s service will supplement the Autonomy eDiscovery product, allowing reviewers to quickly and easily read documents originally written in a language in which they are not fluent."
HP Autonomy’s eDiscovery offerings help corporations, law firms and government entities prepare for, and react to, legal matters and investigations involving large amounts of electronic data – regardless of data type or where it resides. A pioneer in Technology-Assisted Review, HP Autonomy offerings span the entire Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) framework – combining Early Case Assessment, processing, and review in a single offering and allowing customers to avoid the risk and cost of switching tools or vendors.
VIA Legal provides global organizations with accurate legal and compliance translations in over 125 languages. In addition to world-class machine technology capabilities, VIA has a global network of over 5,000 legal translators and bilingual attorneys. VIA Legal uses its in-depth legal industry knowledge, legal specific process, experience and scalability to seamlessly partner with in-house legal departments of large multinational corporations, including Cisco, Intel, Expedia, Nike, St. Jude Medical and more.
