Use Red Tape Translation to Make Important Phone Calls in German
Red Tape Translation just got a great rap in Elliot Herman’s blog, Lost in Translation. Kathleen was able to find a simple solution to a problem that was driving Elliot crazy. New apartment, new lights,new stove — installation necessary! Without speaking a word of German, Elliot was having a bit of difficulty getting an appointment with an electrician. Having tried Language Line, a telephone interpretation service, Elliot was floored to discover that the cost of using an interpreter there was as much as $3.95 per minute.
Kathleen Parker has a much better solution for simple everyday translation problems. Book a block of Kathleen’s time in advance (minimum 1 hour for 29.95EU per hour) and use the time to communicate however you need. If it’s a simple phone call, you organize a time with Kathleen at Red Tape Translation on Skype, give her the details of your translation issue, and she’ll make the call for you. While you’re present on Skype to answer questions, she’ll communicate with whoever you need to talk to, and keep you updated as the call progresses. It’s not quite conference calling, but for everyday matters, it’s an enormous help. Book the appointment, organize the technician, talk to your landlord or coordinate an event. Skype will keep a record of the time Kathleen spends helping you out, and if there’s time left over, you can use it later when your next issue comes up. There are no time limits or expiration dates on prepaid time.
