Previously, many commercial legal organizations relied on external translation services to help translate critical deal or litigation documents written in a different language. Risk and liability issues arise when lawyers resort to using public translation sites online to translate documents relevant to a privileged legal matter. In addition, these sites are generally unable to translate large numbers of documents at once, or to retain the formatting of the original documents. With the development of advanced AI technology, digital translation solutions have emerged that are able to translate large numbers of complex legal documents into multiple languages with great accuracy, retaining original formatting. These solutions are commonly employed by firms and organizations engaged in cross-border legal work. Leading vendors in this space include RWS (previously known as SDL) and Iconic Translation.
