Kathleen was very easy to speak to, very knowledgeable, and not afraid to tell me when my unique situation was beyond the bounds of her knowledge.
Kathleen and co were incredibly expedient in processing my documents for translation, arranging physics translators, and were unparalleled shepherds in helping me navigate the visa process. I recommend them completely.

Kathleen really helped me to understand the different visa options available to me in Germany and the requirements when applying for each visa. She was also able to clarify what order things need to be done in (which appointment needs to come first etc.), which was very confusing to me at the beginning. If you’re a foreigner feeling completely baffled by German visas, speak to Kathleen!

I’ve used Red Tape a number of times, with the Arbeitsamt (in person and on the phone) and more recently with the Ausländerbehörde (in person). I’m competent with German but I just wanted some extra support for the appointments and calls, as they can be challenging. Both were great translation experiences and I would absolutely recommend their services for anyone who is navigating German bureaucracy. Not only do they have experience with translating but also with the whole system, which was really useful for me.

I was very happy with the services I received from Red Tape Translation. I needed a translator for my freelancer’s visa interview and Liz couldn’t have been better! She not only made everything run smoothly in the meeting but she kept me calm with friendly conversation beforehand…something I really needed, as I was pretty nervous. Thank you, Liz and Red Tape Translation!

Red Tape Translation knows all of the immigration officials personally. They know their likes and dislikes and don’t just translate for you, but advocate for you if necessary. Liz was fantastic and after the first part of the meeting when we were sent out of the room, she was able to assure me that this official always raises questions but then always resolves them by the time we go back in. And that is exactly what happened. I heartily recommend Liz and Red Tape Translation.

I had an excellent experience with Red Tape Translation! They helped me successfully get my freelance visa. Everything became so much easier with their help. The appointment, which I was quite nervous about, went perfectly smoothly thanks to their skilful assistance and interpretation. Highly recommended!

Cannot recommend this service enough. Super professional, and fast responsiveness. Kathleen was incredibly helpful and also very comforting, which is very much needed when you go through the overwhelming German bureaucracy.
