Our Coverage in the Columbia–Orangeburg-Newberry Area

We opened our doors in Knoxville, Tennessee in 2007. Before long we begin translating for many, many customers in South Carolina. In fact, customers requesting documents (the SC 4030 for example) for the SC DMV became a daily occurrence. For this reason, we opened two South Carolina branches in 2009, which soon became two of our busiest locations.

In addition to serving customers in the city of Columbia and the entire Orangeburg and Newberry area (the Columbia–Orangeburg-Newberry Area), we serve the following areas: Richland County, Lexington County, Fairfield County, Calhoun County, Kershaw County, and even Saluda County, which is shared with our Greenville Office. In the past few years, we have translated for clients in the following suburbs: St. Andrews, Seven Oaks, Lexington, Dentsville, West Columbia, Cayce, Irmo, Forest Acres, Woodfield, Red Bank, Oak Grove, Camden, and even Lugoff.

For the most part, we provide document translation services (English translation and Spanish translation), certified translations (for USCIS, OSHA and a variety of federal, state and local agencies) and, in some cases, voice interpretation services.
