The legal predecessor of Official Translations Ltd. was established at the end of 2009 with the help of translators and interpreters with decades of experience. We are a Hungarian registered company based in Budapest. From the very beginning, our business model has been based on the trinity of reasonable price - quality - availability.
Over the years, we have built up our pool of freelance translators and interpreters; today we provide Hungarian, English and German translation and interpreting services to around 10 translators and interpreters. Since 2017, we have standardised the use of MemoQ translation support software and maintain our shared terminology database. Our freelance colleagues have continued to develop their professional skills. Since the mid-2010s, we have received requests for our media translation and copywriting services. Since 2019, we exclusively use szamlazz.hu's electronic invoicing system. Since 2020, we also produce official translations as electronically signed PDFs that comply with EU and Hungarian law.
We specialise in legal, administrative and technical texts, but we also handle economic and medical texts. Our translators have the necessary academic qualifications to work in all official and administrative situations.
We have been certifying our official translations (certificates, birth certificates, official documents) since the beginning of 2010. Our sworn translations have always been accepted by the authorities and our court translations have never been challenged.
In the first year of the COVID epidemic, we introduced the issuance of electronically signed e-certificated documents (figure). We issue an e-certificated document certified by the qualified service provider NETLOCK, which complies with the EU eIDAS Regulation and the Hungarian e-Administration Act.
We specialise in media translation: we translate, edit and export texts in graphic and audio-visual products in any format. We also offer printing services for your printed materials and content management and search engine marketing for your German-English website.
From the very beginning, we have also been providing Hungarian-English interpreting services for conferences, authorities, courts, legal and business meetings, events, training courses; live and, since 2015, via distance interpreting.
