Iconic was delighted to have sponsored this year’s Relativity Fest London, which took place on May 1st at 155 Bishopsgate. Relativity Fest London is one of the largest e-discovery events in Europe and is getting bigger every year, with more than 500 participants this year. The 1-day conference is designed to educate and connect the international legal technology community.  It is a real “who’s who in the e-discovery arena” event, and Iconic thoroughly enjoyed being a part of this.

As Iconic is part of the Relativity App Hub, which includes applications and integrations built by Relativity developer partners, this was a perfect opportunity for Iconic to showcase our machine translation integration Relativity connector. Our booth was located in the main hall of the conference, where we were able to speak with participants throughout the day, demonstrating our app and showcasing how our legal translation software solution helps organisations save time and costs through instant automated translation of foreign language documents for litigation, investigations, information governance, and more.

What did the Iconic team learn from the event?  We learned that automated translation is actively used in the e-discovery field but perhaps not to the extent it could, and perhaps should be used. There is a certain amount of hesitance around its use, particularly when it comes to data security.  Of course, this is a key concern for us also, so throughout the day, we were able to demonstrate how easy it is to use our translation connector right within the Relativity Platform, and log what exactly happens to sensitive data and how its integrity is protected.

There are so many instances where automated translation is the most effective option for e-discovery! Just one example would be where Electronically Stored Information (ESI) includes multiple languages, and Iconic’s software automatically detects the individual languages of the documents and can translate them from over 50 languages.

The Relativity Fest was packed with relevant sessions,  with a strong emphasis around the upcoming  GDPR regulations which are coming into effect May 25th.  The ‘last minute GDPR  preparation checklist’ session had everyone tweeting.

Feel free to contact us here if  you weren’t able to speak with us in London and you would like to learn more about automated translation.

We really enjoyed meeting so many people, and Relativity Fest London was a real treat to attend!   A special thanks to the Relativity Fest organizers who did an outstanding job.  We look forward to attending Relativity Fest Chicago in October!
