Kiersted / Systems Announces Expanded Complex Foreign Language Processing Capabilities

Processing Capability Now Fully Unicode-Compliant

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - January 22, 2008) - Kiersted / Systems (, a seasoned leader in electronic discovery and legal technology consulting, today announced a significant expansion of the company's complex foreign language processing capabilities. As worldwide commerce grows at an unprecedented rate, it is imperative that legal technology systems have the ability to process data in virtually any foreign language.

To further their commitment to their expanding e-discovery services, Kiersted / Systems has recently completed extensive system and network updates, thus making them fully Unicode-compliant.

In addition, Kiersted / Systems can now search for foreign language text across a virtually limitless range of languages and character sets.

"Kiersted / Systems has significant experience supporting the urgent legal technology needs of global corporations," said George Kiersted, Founder and President of Kiersted / Systems. "In addition to the Latin-based languages, our clients require legal technology solutions for Russian, Arabic, Chinese, Hindi, Greek and Hebrew to name just a handful of languages. With these new Unicode-compliant updates, we can seamlessly process data in virtually any foreign language."

Some of the many supported languages include:

--  Arabic
--  Brahmic (including Bengali, Hindi, Punjabi)
--  Cyrillic (including Russian, Turkmen)
--  Greek
--  Han (including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese)
