Translated View of Foreign Language Documents

Location: Document Viewer -> Translated


The Document Viewer displays a Translated tab for foreign language documents that have been translated using one of the following methods

  • A third-party translation tool on a local computer;

  • Human translation; or

  • Lexbe's eDiscovery Auto-Translation services.

To access the translated version, click any link to the foreign document in the Lexbe eDiscovery Platform (LEP) from Search, Browse, or Facts & Issues pages. LEP's dual search index will contain both the original language and the translated version, thereby making it possible to find the document searching in either language.

Auto-Translation Services

LEP offers auto-translation services for foreign documents uploaded to the case. Contact your eDiscovery Solutions Director for an Auto-Translation Services quote.

Manual Upload of Translated Documents

The user may manually upload documents that have been translated outside of LEP using a translation tool or a human translator. The translated version must be a saved in PDF file format. Translated documents that are manually uploaded will not delete the original document but instead are added to the same record.

Steps to Manually Upload a Translated Document from the Document Viewer

The instructions below assume the user has uploaded foreign documents to a case in LEP and has translated them outside of LEP. From the Browse or Search pages, click on the title of the document to which to upload the manually translated version.

Navigate from the top menu to the translation section (Document Viewer->Doc Tab). Click the UPLOAD MANUAL TRANSLATION hyperlink to access the Translator Editor page.

From the Translator Editor page, click on "Choose File" to select the translation from the local computer. Once the translated file is selected, click UPLOAD to upload the translation directly to the TRANSLATED tab in the Document Viewer.

Close the current page and refresh the Document Viewer page.

Once the upload has completed the Translated tab will display the translated version in the Document Viewer. The original can still be viewed from the PAGE, PDF, and ORIGINAL tabs.

Downloading Translated Files (one at a time)

From Document Viewer->Translated tab, use the Acrobat control icons to download the Translated version outside of a production. From Document Viewer->PDF, use the Acrobat control icons to download the version which has not been translated. Translated documents are not part of the Download Briefcase generated from the Browse and Search pages. Only the foreign language versions will be available under the ORIGINALS and PDF sub-folders.

Which Version will be in a Production?

Only the PDF and Original versions of the document will be included in a production under the ORIGINALS, PDF, and TEXT sub- folders.
