  • Your company has a very good reputation. Your associates are informative, efficient, friendly and helpful. I consider myself very lucky that I worked with Bromberg & Associates to have my birth certificate translated from Spanish to English. All initial document transfers and revisions were done electronically via e-mail. I appreciate Bromberg’s use of technology. I never had to drive to Hamtramck. Apparently, other translation agencies don’t pay such careful attention to the exactness of the original document layout. Your fine attention to detail is greatly appreciated. I received the translation in the mail and was thrilled that I got the documents so quickly. I was back at the Secretary of State Super Center and they accepted the translation no problem. I have possession of my enhanced driver’s license thanks to Bromberg.
