Professional translation EN-DE: one-page letter of intent (Absichtserklärung)


A careful and professional German translation of your letter of intent to support your application for a freelance permit (AKA Artists’ Visa). This translation is not certified, but it is suitable for the foreigner’s office and we are very familiar with the official terminology they’ll be looking out for.

We will send the translation to you as a PDF within 2-3 business days.

Please attach a PDF, JPG, PNG or JPEG file.

You can send us a scan using your smartphone, but it needs to be bright, clear, straight and really good quality – so that we can zoom in and see all the letters, numbers and markings clearly. If your JPG or PDF files are around 1MB per page and well-lit, they’re probably good enough. Brie made this short video to give you some extra guidance.

    If you’re applying for a residence permit for the purpose of freelance employment in accordance with §21 (5) or even a self-employment permit in accordance with §21 (1), you probably have proof of work lined up with German clients to support your application. Get them translated professionally if they were given to you in English. If you’re in Berlin, they won’t need to be certified, but they are a crucial part of your application and you want to make sure your translator choose the right words to avoid misunderstandings.
