Legal

Content in the legal industry only continues to grow, adding burdensome challenges for any firms that require integrated, high-quality translation services. Firms large and small often don’t have the resources or bandwidth to keep pace.

Meet the multilingual needs of your legal organization

International transactions and commerce have fueled the need for specialized legal translation services, from patent translation, to support for e-discovery in complex litigation, to translation of commercial contracts. The complexity of these materials demands a partner with language expertise as well as legal experience.

Legal: Case Study

Result

One of the world’s largest chemical companies needed a new vendor to help them with a major trade secret litigation involving a Korean company. The legal translations provided by their previous vendor were often late and lacked the quality required for such an important legal proceeding.

During the pre-trial phase of the litigation, the client chose Geotext to review all previously translated content. They then gave us full translation responsibilities for the remainder of the proceedings. We edited the translations provided by their previous vendor, bringing the work product up to the requisite level of quality, and certified more than 1 million words of Korean-to-English documents for use as exhibits during the trial. In conjunction with their outside counsel, we provided the client with continuous, 24/7 support to ensure that the translation workflow progressed with maximum efficiency throughout the course of the litigation.

The jury for this case ruled in favor of our client, awarding them one of the largest damages ever recorded in defense of intellectual property. In fact, we were subsequently contacted by the opposing counsel to provide translation services on their behalf for future unrelated matters.
