Conversion of the Old Legal Copies into New Documents
We had a Brazilian client, belonging to the IT sector and who approached us with certain solutions related to the legal industry. Their publishing services help them to enhance the method through which a legal information is accessed to increase the development of the legal sector of Brazil.
The client wanted to create an online database with nearly 5000 older court judgments, which were previously marked by the judges of the Brazilian High Courts. The copies were sent in the form of scanned PDF documents. This information belongs to nearly 100 backs, approximately in the 19th century and it contained certain characters which the people of today’s era are not aware of.
Their foremost requirement was to convert the 5000 PDF pages into MS Word. We were supposed to format all these files and ensure that the documentation meets the legal standards of Brazil. But, we faced several difficulties such as they required various styles to be inserted within the same document; a high amount of understanding and knowledge was required to understand the characters which were utilized during those days.
To deal with this project, we employed a team of 8 efficient and dedicated members. Initially, they worked on 10 pages which were approved by our client. The OCR technology was adopted for the conversion process, to make it easy and speedy. The process included downloading the original files, carrying out OCR, conducting QC manually, formatting, conducting the final quality check, and finally the delivery.
We were highly appreciated by our client for 99.95% accuracy and delivering the work within the mentioned time frame.
