Multilingual OCR

Our OCR technology allows us to convert image-based and paper documents into editable digital characters. TLS can then import the results directly into Relativity or any other hosting platform for online review.

We can convert high volumes of hard-copy documents into machine-readable text and process them in conjunction with live data files to help you pinpoint where to spend your translation dollars most effectively. Then, taking into account the quality and complexity of the original documents/data as well as the end use of the translation, we will provide you with a Source Material Analysis report proposing the best-fit solution for your project. With this report, your organization has the opportunity to verify—before the process begins—that the strategy and file formats will suit your needs and fit within your discovery systems or other database-backed applications.
