With the right approach, foreign language document reviews are not as daunting as you may think.
In this article in Corporate Counsel magazine, a Law.com publication, BIA’s Maureen Murchie discusses how to efficiently and successfully manage foreign language document review projects.
The trends toward globalization mean at least one thing for legal professionals: increased amounts of foreign language document review (FLDR). And while it’s not a new piece in the e-discovery puzzle, the ability to manage a successful foreign language document review project in an increasingly global social system can be tricky.
Indeed, just running a legal document review with English language documents is enough of a challenge for many attorneys and law firms, the additional complexities of performing legal document review on foreign language documents can be even more daunting.
In today’s eDiscovery environment, an important goal for any document review project is to maintain accuracy, speed and quality. That same holds true for FLDR projects with added challenges of needing to have reviewers who are multilingual and technology platforms that support Unicode and other character sets as well as other features such as specialized tagging.
In this article, BIA’s expert foreign language senior reviewer, Maureen Murchie helps guide legal professionals in performing a successful FLDR by offering four tips to navigate the unique challenges posed by those types of legal document review projects.
