Founded in 2020, Blumenfield Cultural Services, LLC is located in Greenville, South Carolina and works with clients in Asia, Europe, and North America. We help our clients communicate ideas across different formats, styles and languages, ensuring that people from different backgrounds can access them. We work in multiple formats and platforms.

Our approach draws on the methods and principles of social sciences, particularly anthropology and intercultural communication. We use our extensive publishing and journal editing experience to help clients strike the right balance of organization and persuasion. We help translate concepts into language appropriate for their audiences, in addition to translating the content itself. We also coach clients as they develop their careers and plan for future accomplishments.
