While conducting business in multiple languages is necessary and inevitable it also creates grave business risks as some of the most egregious and concerning compliance issues become much harder to detect. Sound risk management requires an effective approach to reviewing multilingual datasets. In this thought-provoking session, attendees will get a refreshing flavor for how delightfully complex multilingual reviews can be. The speakers will illustrate the challenges of searching multilingual data and explain workflow choices for the review of multilingual documents.
