Since 1921, Nationalities Service Center (NSC) has been providing translation and interpretation services to immigrants, refugees, and others from all over the globe right here in Philadelphia. Today we also serve businesses nonprofits, government agencies, and individuals on projects of every size, scope, and subject. Our Center City office is an important touch point for Philadelphians of all backgrounds, and our roots in the community go deep. We offer both consecutive and simultaneous interpretation in more than 100 languages. In addition we provide culturally appropriate, punctual, and meticulous translations in a variety of formats.

We work with clients in medical and pharmaceutical industries, technology, marketing and advertising, education, the legal system, government agencies, and non-profits, to name a few.

NSC services include:

  • Translation
  • Interpretation
  • American Sign Language
  • Editing and Proofreading

The best translators and interpreters in the field believe in us and want to be a part of what we do, so our quality is excellent. And because our main mission as an organization is to help immigrants and refugees, our rates are very affordable.

When you work with NSC, you’ll get the satisfaction of knowing that not only are you getting the best work at the best price, you’re helping to improve the lives of refugees from such diverse places as Sudan and Cambodia who live right here in your own community.
