Austin, TX — February 23, 2024Boostlingo, a leader in language access technology, celebrates Katharine Allen as one of MultiLingual magazine’s “Influencers Driving the Language Industry” list. This recognition underscores Allen’s dedication to empowering remote interpreters and shaping the future of the interpreting industry.

Allen’s journey began as a community interpreter, witnessing firsthand the inequities and challenges faced by interpreters and immigrants needing their services.

Allen has been promoted to Director of Language Industry Learning, where she will leverage her expertise in various areas, including remote interpreting training resources and best practices, advocacy, and responsible AI integration.
