One of the sessions which stood out at the InnoXcell Legal Big Data Symposium 2014 in Hong Kong was a demonstration by Epiq Systems of its ability to handle audio eDiscovery in multiple languages.
With high-wire bravado, Epiq did this live, with passages read out in both English and Mandarin. It worked well, and was certainly different from the usual platform and podium sessions. There is no substitute for showing software in action, and audio is a little more dynamic than mere text.
Celeste Kemper, Director, Document Review Services Asia for Epiq Systems and Nick Rich, a consultant with Epiq in London, took the lead on this performance.
Afterwards, we took the opportunity to interview each of them. It seemed appropriate also to ask Epiq’s Jennifer Qian to explain the system in Mandarin.
