Iconic launches new, secure eDiscovery translation solution

  • New translation application makes multilingual document review process faster, cheaper, and better
  • Machine translation in more than 50 languages and 2,000 language combinations
  • Software has intelligent analysis features for efficient discovery, actionable insights, and faster more informed decisions

Dublin – January 31, 2017 – Iconic Translation Machines (Iconic), a leading machine translation (MT) software and solutions provider, today announces the release of its proprietary translation software application for eDiscovery. Iconic’s new eDiscovery application will help translation companies, eDiscovery providers, law firms, and corporate legal departments to translate large quantities of foreign language Electronically Stored Information (ESI) quickly, securely, and effectively.

The data explosion in eDiscovery and the emergence of ESI has changed the landscape for legal professionals when it comes to collecting, securing, managing and reviewing information. Cross-border litigation often introduces foreign language documents into the discovery mix, adding an expensive and time-consuming layer to the review stage.

Iconic’s new eDiscovery MT application enables a more streamlined foreign language document review process with real-time language translation. This new solution – built upon the company’s proprietary Ensemble Architecture TM – provides a better quality end-to-end litigation translation experience, which can be further adapted to each specific legal case through custom enhancements. With more than 50 languages, and over 2,000 language combinations supported, Iconic’s specialist solution simplifies international eDiscovery, empowering users to find the most relevant documents in their own language.

Enhanced search, as well as intelligent analysis and review, is enabled on both a document and collection level by linguistic features including document classification, data summarisation, automatic language detection, and key term and named entity identification, among others.

The solution offers unparalleled flexibility in its ability to process large volumes of data hundreds of times faster than traditional approaches. Key data formats are supported, including office documents, PDF files, emails, and images, ensuring users can focus on the task at hand without worrying about data compatibility. The translation service is accessible through Iconic’s own online translation portal, on-premise server solutions, or third-party application connectors.

Critically aware of the importance of data confidentiality in eDiscovery, Iconic safeguards sensitive data in its software, allowing users to benefit from absolute information security. This includes private cloud-based deployments with 256-bit SSL encryption, or secure on-premise installations, behind firewalls where necessary, which ensure that data never leaves the user’s network.

Iconic plans to launch a connector for the Relativity platform in the coming months. The connector will provide users of Relativity with seamless integration and access to Iconic’s MT services and enhanced foreign language document processing and search.

Iconic’s new eDiscovery application is the culmination of many years of experience in the field of language translation software for the legal sector, which provided a unique insight into the pain points and needs of its global clients.

Our expert MT scientists and specialist engineers have worked hard to bring together our best-in-class translation technology with innovative ESI processing techniques into a single application which we are delighted to launch today,” said Iconic CEO John Tinsley. “We have already seen the application in action through several large, cross-border litigation cases to great effect. It’s exciting for us to be able to now offer it globally to organizations who have to contend with foreign language eDiscovery.”
