A Lighthouse client faced an investigation in Russia that involved 159 custodians and required the collection of millions of documents in English, Russian, and a variety of other eastern European and Middle Eastern languages. After deduplication, search term iteration, and junk file analysis, Lighthouse was able to eliminate more than 93% of the collection, but still needed an English translation prior to reviewing hundreds of thousands of foreign language documents. They turned to LSI's Translation Plug-in for Relativity to automate and optimize the translation process. The documents were translated, and the client supplied a glossary to enhance machine translation for the Russian documents, reducing the relevant Russian file count from 74,492 to just 314 documents. A light manual edit was then run over the machine translations for a quality check.

"Lighthouse supports a variety of international clients where foreign language translation is a crucial need. Through our partnership with LSI, and their integration with Relativity, we have streamlined the process for both the translation and production of those documents, saving our clients millions of dollars each year."
