eDiscovery – Legal Document Translation Services

Multilingual eDiscovery, Translation, and Managed Review Services

The combination of its Ascent eDiscovery platform with the foreign language translation and managed document review services provided by Morningside, a Questel company, makes the company a one-stop resource center for complex legal matters that require multilingual documents to be hosted, translated, and reviewed.

eDiscovery Support for Foreign Language Documents

Questel’s Ascent eDiscovery environment incorporates Ipro’s “discovery ][ Enterprise” application suite which includes Unicode-compliant solutions that enable end users to review documents written in most foreign languages.  The application’s use of Unicode means law firms and corporate legal departments have options when it comes to tackling multilingual document review projects.

  • Option #1: Review First, Translate Second – Reviewing foreign language documents before translation reduces the number of documents that require translation.
  • Option #2: Translate First, Review Second – Reviewing foreign language documents after translation reduces the volume of ESI hosted for eDiscovery purposes.

Each option has unique pros and cons, so projects managers from the Ascent eDiscovery team and Morningside will work with you to determine the best way to approach your multilingual document review project.


Morningside services law firms and corporate legal departments in need of managed document review services with a network of 8,000+ certified translators with fluency in 200+ languages and dialects, who support complex eDiscovery projects by providing these services:

  • Managed document review of English language and multilingual documents
  • Certified translation of foreign language documents
  • Machine translation (MT)
  • Live, real-time legal interpretation and transcription

Morningside’s managed review services do not require the use of the Ascent eDiscovery platform – reviewers are familiar with most eDiscovery platforms and can use a client’s in-house resources or another eDiscovery service provider’s environment.
