LSI is a leader in e-Discovery Foreign Language Translation and Review

Booth #315
LegalTech New York 2013

NEW YORK--()--Linguistic Systems, Inc. (LSI) today announced the release of a new version of its flagship patent-pending Select Translation Service™ software application that has been integrated with Relativity, kCura’s web-based e-discovery platform, and is now listed in the Relativity Ecosystem. As a platform, Relativity allows developers to design, build, and integrate applications that add or extend functionality.

Select Translation Service (STS) is a unique, patent-pending, secure translation system that provides five levels of service to address the varying special needs involved in translating e-discovery documents. The service includes fast and very convenient automatic language identification for over 200 languages, machine translation with high-quality proprietary computer translation engines, various levels of machine translation with human post- editing, and full human translation with or without additional editing. LSI’s experience shows that the STS cost for human work averages about 50 percent of the cost of regular human translation.

Currently, STS offers machine translation from 17 foreign languages: Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Russian, Spanish, and Swedish. More than a hundred additional languages are available for human translation.

The LSI Translation Plug-in for Relativity is a software application created especially to provide Relativity users with access to the unique translation services of STS. When this Plug-in is installed on a Relativity server, users may enjoy all the aforementioned benefits of STS directly within their Relativity environment. They can call up and see the English translation alongside the original foreign language text on the same screen within Relativity.

E-discovery software is designed to lower the cost of finding important information hidden in large volumes of data. “But how do you handle the added level of complexity when the data is in one or more foreign languages?” asks Martin Roberts, President of Linguistic Systems, Inc. “Our system has many features to cope with multiple unidentified languages and various formats. It operates in the native foreign language for content analysis search and translates selected documents at the appropriate level requested by the user. This is a fine-tuned approach that provides an optimized solution, resulting in an affordable, much lower cost compared to the traditional cost for e-discovery translation.”

“We’re excited to welcome Linguistic Systems and their integration to the expanding Relativity Ecosystem,” said Andrew Sieja, president and CEO of kCura. “It’s awesome to see third-party developers integrating their software with Relativity, allowing our users to solve more problems and significantly increase the value of their investment in Relativity.”

The LSI Translation Plug-in for Relativity will be demoed at booth #315 at LegalTech 2013, the premier e-discovery tradeshow, from January 29 – January 31.
