Translation help required for 3 hours on Thursday morning in Zug!

Hi all, a bit of background - I have been living here for 2 years in Zug and unfortunately I haven't yet learnt german. I now find myself in a difficult situation where I've recently been made redundant and I registered with the RAV last week. Part of the process is to attend a 3 hour information meeting, the RAV insist that I bring somebody along who can interpret for me. (I tried to attend this morning without but was turned away.) Due to holidays etc. my contacts are unavailable.
I was hoping somebody may be able to help me out and attend with me on Thursday morning, I would be happy to cover expenses and pay a reasonable amount for somebody's time.

Grateful for any help or ideas about how I might solve this issue.

Hi Dublin, sorry to hear about your job loss. If you have found no solution yet I offer to help you out Thursday morning. I'm a native Swiss German speaker and fluent in English. I've also attended a RAV introduction meeting in the past. Please contact me by private message if you're interested.
