Does your business have locations around the world? Do you have global compliance documents in a variety of languages?
Compliance is important, regardless of the countries where you operate or the languages spoken. Staying ahead of new compliance regulations is challenging, especially when that information changes dynamically and can vary across regions and governments. It is critical to have a quick and accurate way to understand your company’s compliance profile.
Depending on where you have operations, English might not be the first language spoken for many of your workers, even workers in countries where English is the “official” language. By leveraging ehsAI’s patented, AI-driven Compliance Automation Software, you can increase your process efficiency and accuracy to manage compliance risk cost-effectively and in multiple languages.
Since many of our customers or prospective customers have operations around the world, we developed our products based on the need for multiple jurisdiction support from our current customers. Compliance Automation Software from ehsAI supports Spanish, French, German, Portuguese and Dutch languages. Our linguistic data labelling team has processed diverse regulatory content, including EU regulations, in each of the languages and/or dialects listed below:
- Spanish – Argentina, Costa Rica, Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico and Spain.
- French – Belgium, France, Switzerland and Canada.
- German – Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
- Portuguese – Brazil and Portugal.
- Dutch – Aruba, Belgium (Flanders), Bonaire, Netherlands, Saba, Sint Eustatius and Suriname.
The Power of AI
How did we develop the accuracy in each language that is required for regulatory compliance? Our Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform has been trained with diverse inputs to ensure high accuracy. Extensive research is conducted to ensure output integrity.
Linguistic rules like syntax and pragmatics vary from language to language, and our data-labeling team researches and tests data from each jurisdiction. We have labellers who are experts in each language and when we process a document, a second individual does a peer review of our output for further quality control. Our customers have provided feedback on our expertise based on their local EHS professtionals.
A second challenge is that foreign regulatory content typically comes in unique formats with varying document structures. Our AI has been tuned to detect the most difficult and unique document structures and citation formatting to ensure the most accurate translations possible.
We continue to learn and receive feedback from our customers on the next desired language and we are prioritizing these requests to support more and more jurisdictions!
