The TLS Process

Automatic Language Identification Processing

Using our proprietary technology, Digital Reef, all data sets are analyzed by language during ingestion, fostering several important downstream efficiencies and workflows.

Linguistic OCR

TLS's processing team ensures the accurate capture of multi-language text through a language-sensitive OCR character set, helping to pull hundreds of thousands of documents into review that would have otherwise been overlooked.

Multi-Language Search Term Consulting

The pairing of our e-discovery services and language solutions ensures the correct identification and application of multi-language search terms that are dialectically precise and always maintain an accurate search syntax.

Translation Request Workflow

TLS automates the translation request workflow, thereby minimizing manual labor and the potential for human error during the request response process.

Machine Translation

TLS offers multiple machine translation (MT) options—including a Relativity plug-in and bulk MT—to efficiently identify documents that are clearly nonresponsive or privileged.

Repeat Content & Propagating Duplicate Translations

Using translation memory, TLS can dramatically reduce translation spend by automatically identifying and leveraging previously translated text to avoid redundant charges.

Bilingual Contract Review Attorneys

Our expansive network of bilingual contract review attorneys—capable of working in over 170 languages—is rigorously tested and continuously trained in up-to-date cultural nuances, trends, and industry-specific terms.
