About Us


Our Spanish Interpreters & Translators are certified in either the medical field or court certified or both.

They are familiar with cultural idioms and language nuances and have been trained and tested ready to provide you with the best communication possible.

We have interpreters in Columbia, Charleston South Carolina and in Charlotte, North Carolina but we will travel anywhere in the Carolinas.

Technical & Proficient

All Palmetto Interpreters contractors must have a degree in higher education. They must be trained and pass an interpretation and translation competency test that includes very technical grammar in Spanish and English. Being highly and equally proficient in both target and source languages Palmetto Interpreters is able to provide YOU with the highest industry standards in our field.
