Five-star experience! An accomplished interpreter/translator in her own right, Karen Borgenheimer is not only knowledgeable about the complexities of legal interpreting and translating, but she is also a gifted professor.  I have taken a number of courses with Karen over the years and always learn something new.  Her courses are informative, entertaining and re-energizing.  I highly recommend taking a class with Karen.  You’ll be surprised at how much she can help you to improve your skills as a legal interpreter/translator – whether you’re a newbie, a seasoned veteran, or fall somewhere in between. – Bonnie Weiner
