As data volumes grow globally, tougher data privacy laws are increasing demand for multi-lingual reviews, adding a new dimension to the cost and complexity of legal review.

When you think about outsourcing review, there’s a lot to think about.

Cost v. Quality

You shouldn’t have to sacrifice one for the other. It’s easy to gravitate toward low hourly rates but equally important to understand they may come with hidden costs. Do the rates include everything to complete the process – including reviewers, predictive coding, hosting? Will the results be defensible? Will there be multiple vendors involved at various stages? How the process is managed is equally important as the speed and accuracy of review. Hourly rates and line item pricing decoupled from an efficiently managed review process can ultimately result in higher overall costs and potentially impact review quality.


The technology used plays a big role in review efficiency. The faster you can get to get to key facts, the sooner you can develop case strategy. Acuity workflows utilize easy-to-use visual analytics, concept clustering and advanced predictive coding in Ringtail e-discovery software to reveal key facts fast and with more depth than standard review methodologies. Key documents and themes can be pinpointed within days of a review starting and document decisions per hour skyrocket with the ability to:

  • Look at documents not based solely on keywords
  • Quickly summarize data and visualize trends
  • Simultaneously view multiple decision points to speed quality control and ensure accuracy eliminating the possibility of re-review

Additionally, the FTI team can deliver adjunct technology services globally – from collection through production – reducing the time and potential risk associated with multiple vendor handoffs.

In an ever growing global economy intertwined in litigation and multi-jurisdictional compliance, matters that require foreign language expertise and translation services are deftly managed with the Acuity workflows and our multi-lingual review attorneys. The ability to quickly find relevant data in multiple languages, translate in line and deliver results are securely powered by Ringtail.
