“Our mission is to foster connections in our diverse community through seamless and effective communication.”
HIT Services was founded in 2010 by Jeannette Houchens – a certified Spanish interpreter with a strong business background. Her journey started back in Colombia in 1997, where she began her career in languages. Over time, her dedication and passion for excellence in interpretation and translation motivated her to become an active participant in the language services industry.
While working as a freelance interpreter, Jeannette noticed the crucial need for better language services that grasp not just the words, but the cultures behind them. Today, she’s a South Carolina Certified Court Interpreter, a Certified Medical Interpreter (CMI-Spanish) and a Certified Spanish Translator (ATA), leading a skilled team dedicated to make communication smoother and bridge the gap between cultures. At HIT Services, it’s not just language – it’s understanding that brings us all together.
From the beginning, HIT Services has provided the tools that allow our customers to successfully create and maintain diverse and inclusive environments, while navigating the intricacies of equal access laws.
We have served different public and private organizations, including school districts, comprehensive health care systems, private medical practices, courts, non-profit organizations, and private companies.
We continue to build our customer base, guided by the desire to help our customers succeed in their efforts to serve their diverse clients and while maintaining a competitive edge.
In recent years, our work has extended beyond providing exceptional language solutions. We’ve dedicated ourselves to raising awareness about the vital concepts of language access and language justice. Through our efforts, we shed light on the crucial role that professional interpreters play in facilitating effective communication. By championing these principles, we not only ensure that language barriers are broken down, but we also contribute to the recognition and elevation of the interpreting profession as an indispensable cornerstone of a connected and inclusive society.
