Ask for Price

Organise a court-sworn (vereidigte / beeidigte) interpreter to visit the Standesamt or Jugendamt in Berlin with you. Most Standesämter don’t mind if your interpreter is not court-sworn, but some civil servants will insist that your interpreter be court-sworn. Standesamt and Jugendamt Neukölln, for example. There is also one civil servant we know of at Standesamt Pankow who insists on this too. If your case worker has not specifically requested a court-sworn interpreter (beeidigt, vereidigt), feel free to book a regular interpreter instead.

If you want a court-sworn interpreter at your wedding ceremony in Berlin, go here instead.
