Red Tape Translation has been an absolute lifeline for us moving to Berlin!

Red Tape Translation helped me with some bureaucratic questions I had about Germany. Briefly, here was my experience: I had been trying to sift through various regional and federal German websites and felt that I was going around in circles. I typed a Google search and found their website. After reading through their super useful blog I realized that they clearly had a lot of specific knowledge. I booked an hour appointment via Skype where I was able to plan out some next actions as well as rule out some dead ends that would’ve taken valuable time. Anything where there was a possible loose end was followed up with via email for clarification. I recommend their services wholeheartedly. And PS, there is zero pressure for “packages” or selling up etc. I only mention that because it’s something that makes me hesitate sometimes when considering reaching out to third parties. If you’re looking for any bureaucratic help, even if you think you’ve got it lined up, consider Red Tape Translation as part of your preparation. It might make the difference, as it has with me.

I hired a translator to come with me to my freelance residence permit application appointment – I was assigned with Lioba, who was fantastic! So friendly, open, and knowledgeable to talk with. She made me feel comfortable in a situation I had SO much anxiety over, and made it feel like a breeze. Her interaction directly with the immigration official was also very professional but easygoing, which made things feel smoother overall. And, I walked out with a brand new residence permit! Worth every cent working with Red Tape 🙂

Amazing service, and super quick response. I landed an appointment at the immigration office last minute and they were able to have someone meet me and responded in less than 24 hours. On the day of the appointment, Liz was there early and it was nice to chat with her before the appointment. My appointment was pretty relaxed, not sure if I needed a translator in the end, but better safe than sorry. I’m glad I used RTT. Super professional and friendly service in Berlin for expats.

Red Tape Translation have been nothing short of fantastic for us! The translation service is top-notch and they always deliver on time. Their option for collecting the translated document rather than posting it is really helpful when time is of the essence, as was in our case. Kathleen is absolutely amazing and she personally accompanied us to our appointment at the Landesamt für Einwanderung. She was great company during the long waiting process and really put my wife and me at ease. She also made sure we had all the right documents in place and assured us that no random questions would pop up during the interview! Most of all she was so patient even though we had to wait for many hours and were even stood up for the first appointment! We highly recommend Kathleen and Red Tape Translation to anyone looking for a translator or translated document.
All the best,

Liz from Red Tape Translation accompanied me to my Visa appointment.
I felt comfortable and professional. All my questions and queries were translated thanks to Liz and the whole process was very clear to me; I left my appointment with the correct papers and steps to follow for the process.
Thank you Liz and Red Tape Translation, your service was very professional and friendly.

RTT helped me out with a friendly and helpful interpreter short notice for a registration appointment. Will definitely work with again as needed! Thank you!
