I had a great experience using Kathleen’s translation services. She is so nice and helpful. She went with me to the Auländerbehörde for a residence permit. She is very knowledgeable and was able to help me with my questions. She communicated well between me and the Auländerbehörde employee. She is very reliable and responsive to emails. I would highly recommend Kathleen for all translation needs. I would definitely call on her if I need translation services again.

I had a great experience with their service.
Professional, on time, and friendly.
Saved me at the last minute, when I almost had to postpone me visa request meeting in a month.

I used Kathleen’s services last week – she came with me to the Ausländerbehörde and I’m so glad that I had her there. Not only did it make communicating with the staff much easier, but she knows all the processes and procedures backwards and was able to reassure me that what was going on was normal. I have a shiny new freelancer visa now and if another situation arises where I’m not confident in my ability to negotiate the red tape in Deutsch, I will not hesitate to call on Kathleen again.

I recently used Kathleen’s services and was very pleased with all aspects of service, which were both professional and friendly. Kathleen is knowledgeable, personable and reliable. Translating and interpreting is more than just an exchange of words and phrases to those in another language, it is also about knowing the cultures involved and how situations, ideas and needs may be explained in the most beneficial way for the client, and I strongly felt this during our appointment.
Pricing for services is very competitive and well-worth whatever options you choose, compared to other similar places. What I particularly noted, as I also use other ex-pat and German services and individuals for a variety of needs, Kathleen knew some of these and had worked in conjunction with them in a mutually beneficial way regarding references and clients.
Absolutely on my list of recommendations (I’ve already done so in the week since my appointment), and I look forward to working with Kathleen in the future.

I have used Kathleen on 2 occasions now and would definitely use her services again.
She is very professional and efficient, always shows up to the appointment on time and even earlier.
She is very reliable when you email her to book an appointment. She tries her best to accommodate you also and always replies quickly.
Kathleen is not just useful as a translator. She is also very useful because she knows the system here in Germany. She has experienced most of the same things herself when looking for a new life in Germany so it is very settling to have her also there because she knows what to expect.
The cost of Kathleen’s services are also very reasonable for the the service she provides.
She is a very professional lady and also very pleasant to speak to when you are waiting to be seen for example at the Burgeramt or Arbeitsamt.
I would recommend her to everyone looking for this kind of service

I used the help of Kathleen a few times and would ask her again shall I need something in the future. She was very helpful, quick and efficient. It was all so much easier having her there with me as on my previous tries alone I left crying because nobody understood me and I didn’t understand them with the little German I have. And I thought it would be easy… I’m very glad I found her through Toytown, we met the next day and everything was sorted. She has the ability to make stressful situation relaxed and go smoothly.
I would definitely recommend Kathleen to anybody who needs help and doesn’t have German.

We used Kathleen at Red Tape Translation a number of times as we were settling into Berlin – for 2 appointments at the LABO and dealing with a rental agency contract (in person and over the phone). She was calm, efficient, professional and good natured as we navigated through the various tasks. Kathleen was a great help and we recommend her without hesitation to anyone needing some help navigating various German companies and Government offices.

I’ve used Kathleen for a lot of telephone translation work, and would highly recommend her.

Without a doubt the most impressive translator I’ve ever had the pleasure of collaborating with: meticulous, fast and easy to work with.

Very helpful and fast 😀
Good job and highly recommend!

I contacted Kathleen about a week ago to organise a translator for our address registration appointment at the Bürgeramt Mitte.
Even though I emailed Kathleen less than 24 hours before our appointment, she was very efficient and managed to organise a translator for us. Excellent service and I would definitely use Kathleen services again. Highly recommended!

Red Tape Translations helped us making necessary phone calls during our first month in Berlin. Big thanks!
