Information About Translators/Interpreters
General sworn in or authorized interpreters, or interpreters that are qualified for legal and public service interpreting in a way that is comparable to the German system are not available in the U.S.
However, for many translations the services of local translators will suffice. Nonetheless, we recommend consulting the respective authorities in Germany to which the translations will be presented to clarify if a translation from the U.S. will be recognized.
The Consulate General cannot assume responsibility for the professional competency or integrity of the persons or firms whose names appear on this list nor does it constitute a recommendation by the Consulate General.
