Not many people are aware of how significant the Hungarian market is for the German economy: the billions in imports and exports puts the country in 13th place among German trading partners. This is where major German car manufacturers, who produce in Hungary, play a particularly important role. The export of cars and car parts as well as machines and electronics collectively make up around half of total export revenues and around a third of the population work in the industry. It is, among other things, these good trade relations – especially with Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg, which are the main German sales markets for Hungarian exports and make up 60% of sales – that has led Hungary to record a steady increase in GDP over the past ten years.
Tourism also plays a key role in the economy: historic Budapest and the picturesque Lake Balaton have always been highly popular tourist destinations. However, Europe’s largest plain – the puszta – a world heritage site, also draws in visitors from abroad, who are just as enthralled by this unique landscape as they are by the culture (like the Csikós – the traditional horsemen – who dominate the work of art entitled ‘Hungarian Post’: standing on the back of the last two of five galloping horses). In view of such special particularities as well as its around 350 thermal baths and the unique Hungarian cuisine, with dishes such as the popular goulash soup (gulyás) or chicken paprikash (paprikás csirke), it’s no wonder that each year sees more tourists heading to Hungary.
Of course, every sector has its own peculiarities: terminology, complex specialist references or a special style that is popular with the target audience. To be able to communicate effectively in the target language, it is important to consider all of these aspects in a professional translation. This is exactly why we offer specialised translations with industry-specific terminology:

The ‘four-eye principle’ (translation followed by proofreading) also ensures the quality of each project: At tolingo, every Hungarian translation is carried out by a technically skilled translator and subsequently undergoes a proofreading by an equally qualified native speaker to check spelling and grammar. This is how we ensure that all of our translations always meet the highest quality standards.
The outstanding quality of our Hungarian translation services is largely based on the fact that tolingo works only with native speaker translations. In order to be able to produce a precise, technically correct translation, you not only require excellent knowledge of the specialist language and terminology, but you also you need practical knowledge on the respective topic area as well as real knowledge of the customs of the country. At tolingo, your content will therefore only be handled by professional translators who can prove they have years of practical experience in your respective field.
The subtleties of a Hungarian translation
The best way to explain why they are so important is to use an example: in Hungarian, there is an almost limitless number of greetings and forms of address. Some are legacies from the time of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy and are used for (older) women, others are used by children for adults, still others serve as a form of address by men to women they don’t know personally and young people also use their own really special colloquialisms.
These subtle cultural aspects are what make the difference in translation: it goes without saying that native speakers would understand each of these terms. But it would also be immediately clear if the text was translated by someone unfamiliar with the cultural customs of the country. At best, it would appear amusing, at worst offensive, but one way or another, it would not leave a good impression with your clients. To avoid such blunders, we recommend working with a professional translation agency like tolingo: Whatever content you want to have translated – our professional specialist translators will always strike the right note with each project!
Hungarian is a unique language island within Europe because it is completely different to the languages spoken by its neighbouring countries. It originated over 7,000 years ago from the so-called ‘Proto-Uralic’ and belongs to the Ugric branch of the Finno-Ugric languages within the Uralic language family. Although they belong to the same language family, Hungarian and Finnish are so different that speakers of these languages are not even able to improvise to be able to understand each other. Hungarian is spoken by around 13.5 million people. Aside from a few large Hungarian minorities in Romania and Slovakia, however, you’ll rarely find this language outside of its country of origin. Thus, the official language of Hungary, which has been one of the official languages of the European Union since 1 May 2004, is something really rather special.
Unlike in German, for example, the letters Ö, Ő, Ü and Ű as well as the digraphs (a combination of two letters, which stand for one phoneme, one syllable or one morpheme; s, dz, gy, ly, ny, sz, ty, zs) and the trigraph (a combination of three letters, which stand for one phoneme; dzs) each count as one letter in their own right.
The Hungarian alphabet also distinguishes between upper and lower case: the four letters Q, W, X, Y are only used in foreign words and in historical spellings (of family names, for example). Opinions differ as to whether they should be added to the total or not. Thus, the number of letters are sometimes given as 44 and sometimes as 40.
Anyone who has holidayed in Hungary might well have been amazed by the impressively long words on signs and similar places. The reason for this is not a local preference for complexity, but the fact that Hungarian (just like Turkish) is a so-called ‘agglutinative’ language. Put simply, this term means that the words always get longer the more information they contain. The best way to illustrate this is with an example:
ház = house
házam = my house
házaim = my houses
házaimban = in my houses
In the case of special projects, elaborately formatted brochures or Hungarian texts within a set layout, this peculiarity must be taken into account so that the translation can be put into Hungarian just as elegantly as the original. Upon request, our experienced specialist translators can therefore implement style or character specifications to meet your specific requirements!
Do you need certified translations of important documents, such as a birth certificate or a driving licence, for your next visit to the authorities? Not a problem! At our Hungarian translation agency, you can, of course, request certified translations of your documents carried out by a sworn translator. You can be sure that your documents and certificates will be protected throughout the whole handling process against disclosure to a third party.
Firstly, all our specialist translators have signed a declaration for the confidential handling of data and content. Secondly, the IT systems and platforms of our translation agency are reviewed and certified in accordance with ISO/IEC 27001 and all information is only transferred using SSL encryption. Thus, at tolingo, you can be sure that your confidential content will always be in safe hands!
