The Client

A full-service international powerhouse legal firm with more than 2,000 attorneys in offices around the world. Over the years, the firm has built internationally recognised practices in a wide spectrum of transactional, litigation, corporate, environmental, financial, and regulatory areas. With one of the largest and most sophisticated litigation practices in the world, the client has consistently been ranked among the top ten law firms on ‘‘The A-List’’ published by The American Lawyer.

The Challenge

On a Friday evening, the client found themselves with over 100,000 words of highly technical, legal Chinese that needed to be translated into English in order to be filed in court on the following Monday. Consistency of language and style throughout the translations was essential, as additional related documents would be submitted later for delivery on a rolling basis. Furthermore, in order to be valid in court, the translations needed to be certified and kept completely confidential.

Faced with this seemingly impossible deadline, the client trusted there was only one language services provider who could finish the translations on time and according to the strict quality standards of the courts.

The Solution

With extensive experience completing high-volume translations on tight deadlines, the staff at LingArch Legal Solutions put together a project management team to streamline the production process and expedite delivery. A team of highly trained linguists with both legal and technical expertise collaborated over the course of the project to ensure consistency throughout the documents.

The confidentiality of the translations was assured through the use of a secure online portal to which only the clients and LingArch staff had access. Despite the remarkably tight turnaround, our ISO 9001:2000 certified, three-step quality control process ensured that the highest level of accuracy was maintained for all translations, allowing the client to rest assured that the work would be considered valid by the court.

The client continues to turn to LingArch Legal Solutions to meet its language services needs. With dedicated client service representatives and production staff available 24/7, LingArch is always there to handle any translation request.
