I had a great experience with Red Tape Translation.
Macy helped me sign my rental apartment contract today. The appointment was planned a couple of days in advance through Katie and the service was amazing. Thank you for everything!

I had a great and hugely informative session with Kathleen about applying for a Freelance Work Permit. She pointed things out that only someone who’s been working in Germany a long time, or who is fluent in the language could. It made a potentially very stressful process incredibly smooth.

My experience with Red Tape Translation has been excellent. I spoke to Kathleen, who was able to give me some clear and cogent advice regarding my freelance visa. I wouldn’t hesitate to use their service if I had further questions about visas or life as an expat in Germany.

Super professional and really fast turnaround. I was able to book an appointment with only a few days notice (though of course I recommend leaving yourself more time!).

I booked a session to receive guidance on my legal/employment status. Kathleen provided sound advice, spoke directly to the point and from well-informed experience. It’s evident that she knows how to navigate Germany’s red-tape bureaucracy. I recommend doing some basic research on your own (know what you want/some idea of options), preparing your questions in advance, and making the most of the time with Red Tape Translation’s experts. I would gladly use their support again in the future.

My one regret regarding Red Tape Translation is that I didn’t find them MUCH sooner! I had a coaching call with Kathleen (I’m a US citizen looking to move to Berlin this year), and she exceeded my expectations.
She catered the option exploration to my specific circumstances and was informative and encouraging (but realistic). She recapped our discussion in a clear follow-up email with links and next steps.
I’d highly recommend her services to anyone who needs guidance navigating the German visa system.

An amazing company that is a joy to work with and completely removes the hassle of relocation and residency to Germany. Truly, I could not recommend more highly.

Highly recommend the red tape translation services!

Lucas was a great interpreter and support during a recent appointment at a hospital. Navigating hospital administrations and paperwork would be challenging for me in English, let alone in a language I am not proficient. Lucas made the whole process go very smoothly, and I was very happy with the service.
I definitely plan to use Red Tape the next time I need German interpreting/translation support.
Nicholas Morera, Berlin
Extremely helpful. Answered my questions thoroughly and professionally. Can strongly recommend.
Ben Jackson, Berlin
All worked well! They found a translator for my second favorite date, we met me on time and got the process done.
