Mother-tongue translators of German

If the translation is from German into English, they must be native English speakers; but if you need a translation from English into German, translators should ideally be Germanophones.

Where does German come from?
German was formed during the migration of several peoples and became part of the Germanic language family.
The term means "belonging to the people" and refers to its detachment from Latin, as the academic language, and Welsch, the popular Romance language. As a written language, German first appeared in a document, at the end of its last evolutionary stage (more than 1000 years ago), written in Old High German (750 to 1050).
The intermediate stage, Upper Middle German and Lower Middle German (1050-1500) is characterized by the loss of the final and intermediate vowels ("nd"), the beginning of diphthonging (formation of the double vowels: "au", "ei", "eu") and also by partial monopthonging. With the eastward expansion (colonization), the first attempts to find a written, supra-verbal form of High German emerged.
In the most recent stage, New Low German and New High German, a written language of High German was formed in the east (Elbe region) and spread throughout the German-speaking area thanks to the translation of Luther's Bible ("Sächsisches Kanzleideutsch") and the invention of the printing press. The New Low German became, during this stage of evolution, a dialect.
In general, there are three dialectal groups of German: Low, Medium and High German.
