Interpreting at a Register Office

When it comes to getting married in Germany, there are plenty of legal and organisational matters to deal with, particularly when one of the parties does not have sufficient command of German. It might be helpful (and is often legally required) to have a qualified interpreter present during the appointment.

I will be happy to assist you at any civil register office in the Rhine-Main Metropolitan Region (e.g. in Frankfurt, Wiesbaden or Mainz) in my capacity as a sworn interpreter. I have had the pleasure to interpret many times at various register offices and possess profound knowledge of relevant terminology in English, German and Polish as well as of bureaucratic procedures I can explain to you.

Here are some of the key benefits available to you via my services:

Smooth communication throughout your appointment

Not only do I translate everything that is being said, but I also make sure there is no miscommunication due to cultural differences, achieving full understanding by all involved parties.

Consultation included

In over 10 years of my professional experience I have attended many marriage ceremonies. Based on my expertise I can support you with organisational and practical matters as well as explain to you the official procedures in Germany and the usual dealings with foreign parties.

Additional services

Apart from the interpreting service, I can also provide you with certified translations of your foreign documents for a fair price.

Legal certainty

The legal document confirming that the parties have married is signed by me as an impartial interpreter. This eliminates any doubts regarding the validity of the marriage based on the language barrier.

Professional appearance

In most cases, suit and tie are a must during a marriage ceremony. If you have any specific wishes regarding the attire, please let me know.

Guaranteed data protection

Because of my legal obligation to treat all contents confidentially, I am prohibited from disclosing any details to third parties.

  • Was ist eine Beglaubigung?

    „Beglaubigen“ bedeutet im Amtsdeutsch so viel wie die Richtigkeit von etwas bescheinigen. Man kann etwa eine Unterschrift, eine Kopie oder eine Übersetzung beglaubigen. Dadurch wird deren Echtheit für amtliche Verwendungszwecke nachgewiesen.

  • Is Google Translate a good alternative?

    The notion that translators are an endangered species has already been circulating for some time. Machine translation (MT) offered by companies such as Google or Bing is, after all, free of charge and available any time. Granted: MT is improving year on year. It is fairly adequate for private purposes, for example when you are abroad and need quick help with directions or a hotel booking. Even if you cannot rely fully on the offered translations, communication is simplified.

  • Übersetzen von Führerscheinen - alles, was Sie wissen müssen

    Im Rahmen der Übersetzung ist höchste Präzision gefragt, um ein Ergebnis sicherzustellen, aus dem hervorgeht, welche Fahrzeuge geführt werden dürfen. In manchen Fällen ist es notwendig, Fußnoten mit zusätzlichen Erläuterungen hinzuzufügen. Eine Klassifizierung erfolgt von Amts wegen und liegt im Ermessen der Führerscheinstelle. Allerdings kann ein engagierter Übersetzer auf die Besonderheiten einer Fahrerlaubnisklasse hinweisen und eine mögliche deutsche Entsprechung vorschlagen, was bisweilen intensive Recherche voraussetzt.
