Red Tape Translation Berlin - Kathleen Parker

Take a translator with you to the Berlin Ausländerbehörde or job center. Make 3-way phone calls in German with help from an interpreter. We offer affordable interpreting and translation services to English speakers facing German bureaucracy.

Visiting public offices in Berlin can be stressful if you haven’t yet mastered German, and hiring an immigration lawyer in Berlin is costly. Kathleen Parker can travel with you to your appointment at the real estate agent, apartment viewing, business meeting, or public authority. The fees are reasonable and the service is excellent: its a small price to pay for the security that comes with being able to communicate in German at your appointment.
