Areas of Specialization

Sometimes, the best way of showcasing competence is a story. Spanning many months, Divergent translated over 100,000 words of Chinese translation for a large global law firm. The matter required translators with substantial experience translating highly technical documents who were familiar with antitrust matters, particularly the Foreign Trade Antitrust Improvement Act (FTAIA). When a client comes to us to translate a second request, Divergent understands what is at play.

From the Credit Crisis through to COVID-19, Divergent has seen over the years that bankruptcy matters generate the need for specialist legal and financial translation. Within the area of bankruptcy and insolvency, Divergent supports a multitude of Global 100 law firms working on Chapter 11 filings. As with international litigation, large volumes of documentation need to be translated with precision and within tight timeframes. This requires an experienced project management team and a large network of vetted linguistic resources skilled in bankruptcy translation. Divergent’s translators know the Bankruptcy Code and are up-to-date on laws and regulations that arise in such cases.

Divergent’s ability to support international businesses manage cross-border work and lead truly global workforces is sometimes best showcased in the work we do for international corporations. Annual reports needed in a foreign language? Divergent does that. Internal company memos? Check.

eDiscovery providers have revolutionized the way law firms and corporations manage the review of large volumes of documentation providing technology that offers scale, speed, and cost-effectiveness. The goal of helping customers understand what has been uncovered during discovery and what is relevant to their case is the main objective. Where Divergent comes in is partnering with eDiscovery companies to support their clients on the next phase whereby true language professionals with an intricate understanding of the subject matter help to further review, summarize, or translate and certify key documents.

Given the far-reaching reach of energy in all elements of the world economy, some area of energy often presents itself within the context of law. Whether it is litigation involving international energy suppliers, the financing of a LNG plant, or contracts regarding energy distribution, Divergent has worked on such matters. We routinely translate legal, financial, and highly technical documentation related to renewables, oil & gas, mining, petrochemicals and more.

The US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the rise of anti-bribery and corruption laws and policies in Europe has created an ever-growing need for a wide breadth of translation needs. Corporate scandals involving massive global corporations have meant the need to manage terabytes of data pulled from hundreds if not thousands of electronic devices. You name it: instant messages, emails, internal company communication, text messages, board meeting minutes. It all requires translation. Some of the seemingly most innocuous documentation filled with industry jargon and cryptic messaging can be key to an investigation. Divergent helps law firms and supports eDiscovery companies in sifting through large volumes and providing the linguistic and subject matter expertise to accurately translate extremely vital information.

Divergent regularly translates financial documentation for traditional banks, investment banks, asset management companies, mortgage lenders, tech investors, and other financial institutions such as audit reports, balance sheets, disclosure agreements, investor reports, press releases, pitches, and shareholder briefs among many other types of complex material requiring knowledgeable translators.

Of course, our experience in financial translation is not limited merely to financial institutions. Divergent works with corporate finance and M&A lawyers on cross-border deals, translating due diligence material, providing interpreters via remote link for negotiations, and publication-ready translations of prospectuses.

Given the extraordinary international scope of cross-border dispute resolution, international arbitration is one of Divergent’s core competency areas. Our clients – the world’s largest and most international law firms – represent foreign investors, global corporations, sovereign states, and financial institutions in trade, construction, investment, and other disputes heard at the ICC, ICSID, VIAC, AAA, LCIA, IDRC, SCC, and The Hague.

Divergent’s AMLaw 200 and Global 100 clients depend on our highly knowledgeable staff to manage challenges such as meeting tight deadlines and managing large volumes of documentation smoothly. They also depend on our best-in-class translators and interpreters who, on average, have over two decades of experience and are well-versed in law, finance, technology, construction, energy, and other vital fields within arbitration. Whether it is the translation of an intricate witness statement or the simultaneous interpretation of an Arabic-speaking engineering expert, such is the daily needs of our clients.

Divergent’s work within the insurance sector is vast and ranges from translating legal and technical documentation for law firms engaged in insurance litigation involving professional indemnity, environmental catastrophes, property damage, product liability, and more.

That’s not all. At Divergent, we also work directly with international insurance and reinsurance providers across a number of lines such as aviation, energy, health, marine, P&C, terrorism, and warranty. Whether multinational insurance companies require the translations of policy and product wordings, terms and conditions, cover notes, placing slips, or loss reports, Divergent has subject matter expert translators who know the field.

Given Divergent’s Californian roots and proximity to some of the world’s most influential technology companies, a key area of specialization is intellectual property. Some of our very first clients were and remain the leading IP litigators, trademark lawyers, and patent prosecutors.

Every IP matter Divergent works on is highly confidential. We are no stranger to strict confidentiality requirements nor needing our team to sign a protective order. Over the years, Divergent has delivered certified translations of patents, prior art, office actions, schematics, lab notes, and more. The subject matter involved spans from health diagnostics to manufacturing methods to engineering. When quality is absolutely imperative, leading IP and trademark groups from Palo Alto to Boston, Paris to Munich, and from Tokyo back to San Francisco, rely on Divergent’s specialized linguists, many of whom hold Ph.D.’s.

Divergent prides itself on a diverse portfolio of clients including some of the world’s most renown pharmaceutical and life science companies.

Divergent provides lawyers, paralegals, litigation support professionals, and translation coordinators worldwide with certified-grade translations of key documents such as witness statements, briefs, and judgments for urgent filing deadlines, onsite and virtual interpreting for depositions and witness testimony, and transcription of evidentiary audio and video files.

Our in-house project management team is incredibly experienced in the unique world of litigation. Our ability to manage a flurry of large troves of documents – in the hundreds and thousands of files – under time pressure is critical to success. Divergent ensures every single translation precisely matches the formatting and Bates numbering of the source text and is accustomed to following intricate delivery instructions from our clients, unique to their filing.

The translation requirements of our corporate finance and M&A practice clients present some of the most sophisticated translation work we do at Divergent. To translate a prospectus carries great responsibility given the official nature and external use of the document. It also requires a set of specific skills such as legal and financial translation expertise with an intricate knowledge of correct market terminology. Likewise, the Divergent team helps translate a wide variety of documentation for due diligence.

In addition, we work with some of the biggest M&A communications & PR partners in the world representing financial clients on mergers and IPOs. Divergent translates corporate communications, marketing, legal, and financial material into and from a wide array of languages. Everything we translate is used externally in an official context.

Our work in the legal community represents a majority of what we do at Divergent. It therefore goes without saying that given our dedication to and longstanding relationships with legal professionals, providing support on pro bono matters at competitive rates is of the upmost importance. Divergent goes out of its way to meet seemingly impossible deadlines, translate case crucial documentation, and send interpreters onsite fast for highly confidential and difficult matters involving asylum, human rights, and immigration.

Technology is a throughline across all the work Divergent does. From translating patents concerning electrical engineering components to providing interpreters who have in-depth knowledge of LNG plants, Divergent has done it.

With Divergent’s headquarters located near some of the world’s most innovative technology companies, we have built a portfolio of clients spanning a wide range of verticals: aerospace, gaming, anti-counterfeiting technology, digital & mobile payment services, online security providers, supply chain technology companies, and electronics manufacturers to name but a few.
