“Mrs. Antje Bormann was my interpreter during a trip to the United Kingdom in my capacity as Secretary General of the SPD in November 2004.
The trip included visits to various institutions and required varying vocabulary and different interpreting techniques and approaches in accordance with the prevailing circumstances. All conversations proceeded fluently and without any kind of linguistic misunderstandings. Mrs Bormann always succeeded in adapting to the situation and keeping the conversation flowing to my full satisfaction.
During all of this Mrs Bormann was polite and professional in her dealings with myself, my attendants and my host, the then chairman of the UK branch of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation, as well as our British interlocutors.”
