I can’t recommend Red Tape enough! Kathleen especially has been super helpful and professional whilst helping me with my Arbeitslosengeld application and transition into becoming a freelancer. She was very knowledgeable, and took the time to explain each step in the process, even helping me outline next steps and recommendations. It would have been very stressful and would have taken me hours to do all the research myself. Great value for money, I’d highly recommend this service to anyone that is looking for a translator or admin help to navigate through the German system.

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. She was very honest and though she didn’t tell me exactly what I wanted to hear, she did tell me what I needed to hear. Very helpful and practical advice. I definitely consider the consultation money well spent.

Kathleen is THE BEST!! I cannot recommend this service highly enough for anyone who is looking to avoid the headaches of German bureaucracy. Today I feel stress free, happy and absolutely everything I needed was taken care of in just one appointment. Thanks again!

Kathleen was a pleasure to work with, highly recommended and will definitely be working with Red Tape for future bureaucratic / translation needs. The blog is highly informative on its own and the personalized services are very well priced. Thanks so much!

Great service! I had to pick up keys to a new flat – that always involve some extra steps – and the interpreter was extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgable! Definitely will recommend to friends.

Highly recommend! I was struggling with 6+ different DE forms when in need of financial support during the COVID-19 lockdown, and Kathleen was able to guide me through everything quickly and easily, all the while helping me to understand everything along the way. She’s truly fantastic, and would turn to her again for help.

Kathleen and the others at RTT have always been extremely professional, thorough, accurate, and easy to work with. During the Covid-19 crisis, she has really taken it to the next level – methodically translating every bit of news and information coming out of reputable sources or government offices, spending countless hours keeping the community informed of updates, often at the expense of her own personal life, and offering her services at a drastically discounted rate. Her generosity has been a beacon in dark times. And her work, as always, is excellent.

Red Tape translated my Marriage Certificate for the registration very quickly and communication was excellent. They also accompanied me to get my Red Card, I felt safe and didn’t stress out at all. Their website has a lot of useful information and it very clear how everything is happening. Would recommend to anyone who does not speak German or needs translated documents.

What a great service! Prompt, professional, and having guided others through the bureaucracy they have a lot of experience and info on the process. Definitely plan to use them again!!
