Morae provides legal and compliance solutions to law departments, compliance teams and law firms. When it was engaged to support a global law firm in a complex UK High Court dispute, the combination of massive data volumes (approximately 25 million documents), fast-approaching disclosure deadlines, and foreign language prevalence required a customized workflow with best-of-breed technology. 

Morae turned to us for a secure MT solution which would rapidly detect the source language and produce high-quality English translations.


“This was an extremely high-pressure engagement. RWS thrived in this setting. They demonstrated a client-centric, get-it-done approach.”

Patrick Kellermann, Senior Director and Head of UK Managed Services, Morae Global
