Certified Document Translation

Subject matter experts (SME’s) perform word-for-word translations of relevant documents identified during the discovery process. These can include business correspondence as well as prior art, contracts, and highly technical documents. We can create scalable, customized solutions for translating thousands of documents based on the size, subject matter, and cost requirements of your case.

Foreign-Language Document Review

Foreign language review requires not just native-level fluency, but also subject matter expertise and familiarity with international patent law. Morningside can deliver a document review team of trained linguists as well as multilingual attorneys with the expertise your case requires. Our attorneys and translators can review documents on-site or online, while ensuring security and confidentiality.


Morningside’s certified legal interpreters are available for arbitration, depositions and courtroom appearances in locations worldwide. Our interpreters are chosen based on their extensive legal experience, language proficiency, and expertise in the relevant subject matter. We also offer scheduled and on-demand over-the-phone (OPI) and video remote interpretation (VRI) for legal matters.

Machine Translation (MT)

Morningside offers machine translation to help lower costs and accelerate turnaround times for certain projects. MT allows the case team to get the “gist” of documents, helping identify those that require more accurate human translation.
