Below are reviews from a few satisfied clients since 1995:

"Zilda proved to be a great professional. Our client was very satisfied with her interpretation and complimented her. She owned the situation from beginning to end with the highest professionalism." (Maurizio Toria, CLS Communication, Inc. - Weehawken, NJ)

"Zilda Buzack has worked with us for over ten years, and is a consummate professional. She has demonstrated the highest possible standards with respect to interpreting, professional ethics and reliable service. I recommend her very highly, and without any reservation" (Lauren Egbert, Essex County Superior Court of New Jersey - Supervisor of Interpreters).

"Zilda is an excellent interpreter, and I recommend her wholeheartedly. She is very professional and has the capacity to work under stress in less-than-ideal situations. She is very knowledgeable and professional and it was a pleasure working with Zilda" (Maurice Teffel, President of MTC Consulting International, New York, NY)"

"Zilda is an excellent interpreter. Her work has been of an outstanding quality and she was extremely helpful during the whole conference. We will definitely call her for future work." (Paula Amatore, President of Lingcom, Buenos Aires, Argentina)

"A superior level of skill in the simultaneous and consecutive modes as well as sight translation" (Rebecca Y. Natal, Hudson County Superior Court Training Coordinator, New Jersey)

"Marc and I would like to thank you for the wonderful job that you did on the Segurosspa/Icc Chemical case. We had a lot of compliments about you... In life we so often hear about the negative, that the positive is overlooked - not in this case! We are looking forward to working with you in the future!" (Patricia Goldberg, President of Tranzlations Inc., Roseland, New Jersey)

"... she has been active as an interpreter in the state courts of New Jersey, where she was approved on the highest of three levels (master). Not only is she highly reliable, but her pleasant personality and intelligence combined make her easy to work with". (N. F., US District Court, Southern District of New York)

"As her supervisor and coordinator of her schedule, I enjoy working with Ms. Buzack. She has proven to be very reliable and her strong interpersonal skills have enabled her to handle sensitive issues in a professional manner. I base this information not only on my own experience, but also on the many compliments we receive from the judges with regard to her performance as an interpreter" (Inge M. Urbancic, Training Manager of Interpretation Services, Lionbridge - formerly known as Berlitz International - Washington D.C.)
