The Hungarian economy went from strength to strength in 2019, achieving one of the highest growth rates in Europe, at 5.1% over the first three quarters of the year. The positive performance is expected to continue in 2020, meaning that many Hungarian businesses are confidently moving ahead with plans to expand, including internationally.
It was this healthy economic environment that prompted one Hungarian businesswoman to reach out to Tomedes recently. She was enquiring about our Hungarian translation service, as she wanted to explore the expansion of her business into English-speaking markets. Her product lines had been very well received in Hungary in recent years, providing a firm foundation for international growth. The Tomedes team was delighted to be able to help her on that journey.
The Hungarian language (‘Magyar’ in Hungarian) is a Finno-Ugric language that bears some relation to both Finnish and Estonian. It has also adopted a number of words from German and from Turkic and Slavic languages.
Hungarian has around 14-15 million speakers, who are native to Hungary and parts of Austria, Romania, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Slovakia and the Ukraine. Tomedes engages talented Hungarian translators in order to connect those doing business in Hungarian with those who conduct their business in other languages. In the case of this client, that meant a Hungarian to English translator.
All of our translators have at least five years’ experience in the translation industry and often much more. We use native speakers of the target language in order to deliver the highest possible quality translations. Each of our translators has their own specialism, which is what allows us to provide diverse translation services to clients with varying needs.
In the case of this client, our translator’s experience included both business translation and financial translation – just the kind of expertise that’s useful when you start a new venture overseas.
Business translation needs to be fast and accurate. It needs to support the client to conduct their operations with full confidence in the quality of the documents that they are using. The translation must deliver the same quality in the target language that the client as striven to achieve in the original. Tomedes’ business translation does all this and more, allowing clients to connect with the world thanks to our linguistic expertise. If you’re interested in business translation, you can read a further example of it via the link below.
In the case of this client, we had a batch of business documents in Hungarian that she wanted presented professionally in English (see below for more on the presentation aspect). These ranged from introductory emails and business letters to marketing copy and some detailed financial documents. The client wanted to have everything ready to discuss her products with potential retailers overseas, so that she could follow up quickly and effectively with all those who responded to her initial outreach.
We got to work at once. The client was excited to be pursuing her international expansion goals and we were keen to help her achieve her ambitions!
One thing that the client had specified when she first approached Tomedes (via the 24/7 live chat service on our website, after she used the site to obtain an instant quote for her translation job), was that she needed desktop publishing services. She had spent quite some time perfecting her documents in Hungarian and had outsourced the desktop publishing part of the work, as her own talents lay in other areas. As such, she needed the translated documents to be typeset to mirror the originals – this wasn’t something she could do herself.
We were most happy to help. Tomedes provides desktop publishing services for everything from certificates to full marketing brochures and presentations. We do this for our translation clients as well as independently for other customers.
Our team of desktop publishing professionals are highly experienced, just as our translators are. As a talented multilingual team, they serve clients in a wide range of languages, including Hungarian.
Not only do we provide translation and desktop publishing services, but we also deliver interpreting services, content writing services and outsourced, multilingual customer support. We appreciate that in this day and age businesses can have complex language needs, so we aim to meet those needs by providing a comprehensive range of services. It means that business clients such as our recent Hungarian client have just one point of contact to liaise with rather than several different companies, each providing a different service. It saves time and money for the client, as well as reducing stress.
If you would like to know more about the language services that Tomedes provides, please contact us today. You can get in touch via phone, email or live chat. We look forward to hearing from you.
