What Clients Have To Say
Chief Executive Officer
Aaron Solutions Co.
Karla is one of the hardest working CEO’s that I have had the pleasure to do business with. Karla has a wonderful international vision for her company, and a business model that is sensible enough to make Global Bilingual Solutions the only choice when it comes to learning a second language.
Karla’s company can customize their language programs around your specific business needs, and therefore confidently help your company make strides in what was previously foreign or unknown territory. I highly suggest Global Bilingual Solutions.
Diplomacy in the Making
Karla is an amazing businesswoman. She works closely with clients to make sure that all their goals are met and always finds a way for both parties to be satisfied. Last year, she provided the Greater Philadelphia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce with superb “English as a Second Language for Business Owners” classes in her own facilities in downtown Philadelphia. We had 10 business owners from both South and North Philadelphia learning the English necessary for business owners to succeed, large and small. I would happily recommend Karla and her company always.
Certified Financial Planner
Karla is a true inspiration for our Hispanic Business Owner Community in Philadelphia. She has done an excellent job by leading by example and exceptional service. She has a vision to transform her Company into a major competitor in the industry across the United States and worldwide. I highly recommend her to somebody who is willing to close the language barrier in business transactions, corporate training, and translation services. A+

Karla is a dedicated, hardworking friend who never accepted anything less than her best effort. She is detail oriented and meticulous in her approaches to problem solving. I have always enjoyed working with Karla.
Karla is an extremely successful and engaged person. I was lucky enough to have her as my student many years ago. I always remember Karla for doing much more than she was asked for. Her commitment to her school projects was always nice to see. She had a strong grasp of consumer behavior concepts and always shined above her classmates. I wish to recommend Karla for any endeavor she decides to pursue. She will gladly surprise you every-time
