Default Who speaks German?

I am looking for a German translator who would translate mundane conversation and short, exclamatory remarks from English to German. Let me know if you can help me out.

That might work. Does she know jargon, or is it formal?

Müssen Sie mit jemandem sprechen, oder wollen Sie schriftlichen Text übersetzen? Wenn das gerade schriftlicher Text ist, versuchen Sie diese Verbindung.

Yeah, I've tried translating sites like freetranslation.com, but they're not exact on grammar in terms of punctuation, conjugation, and jargon. I need a human who can understand the language and figure out the best way to speak in German an originally English sentence.

I've had about 3.5 years of German learning, and a few months in Germany...

Yes, yes of course! Would the teacher want to translate for this purpose?

Missed that. Well, the link above shows why I want a translator. It'* the weirdest thing ever, but Adeianos, someone else, and I have gotten together to do this for about 30 comic strips or so.
