Goetthans German Translation & Interpreting

We provide German to English translation/interpreting and English to German translation/interpreting services to businesses, laywers,  government agencies, hospitals, universities, science and agriculture, and to new immigrants.

We believe in clear communication with our clients. We don’t contract our work out, so when you contact us you are able to explain all your requirements directly to the translator. This leads to custom-made translations which are proof-read and edited by professional native speakers. We always meet our promised deadlines. Being a small business with low overheads we are able to offer competitive rates.
