What You May Not Know About Machine Translation

Today machine translation is the game-changer for eDiscovery because of the speed at which it can deliver translations at a fraction of a human cost to help case teams review large volumes of non-English language documents. However, a poorly customized machine translation engine runs the risk of mistranslating critical information so that it is missed out in eDiscovery. Our machine translation process starts with customizing the machine translation engine on terminology from the domain in question. This is critical, as a word in one domain can mean something quite different in another (think of ‘magazine’ in a military vs media context). Our customized machine translation engines generate a first-draft of understandable text with accurate terminology. Selected documents may then be routed for scrutiny to a “real person” for one of three levels of quality:

    1. ‘Augmented’, so legal teams may understand the nuances better in order to make the determination of whether a particular document is of interest

    2. ‘Polished’, so that the text in question is a 100% accurate representation of the source text

    3. ‘Sworn’ or ‘Certified’, so that the translation may be used in court.
