  • Well I for one will be taking my personal injury claim (trip and slip at work if anyone is interested) elsewhere after reading this article. One has to make a stand and talk with one's feet in a situation like this and Herbert Smythe will not be getting my custom on this occasion. Language barriers indeed. I never !

  • To be fair, if there's going to be any cross border dictation/WP interaction then accents can be a pretty big problem.
    When I worked in NZ and had Aussie WP typing out dicta it was generally full of question marks and mistakes due to differences in pronunciation (and this is between two very similar accents). I'm sure this would be exacerbated by differences in law between Aus/Asia Pacific and N. Ireland (i.e. unfamiliar terms etc).

  • I once worked in a coding room in Australia where one of the coders, a qualified Irish barrister, was one of those strong silent types. It was very difficult to get him involved in a meaningful conversation but I remember people thought well of his coding work.

  • Does this mean that another law firm has realised it cannot rely on the gravy train that is low-level document discovery work?

    If so, well done Herbies on moving into the noughties....modernity will catch up with you some time soon...
