Frequently asked questions
How much does a German translation cost?
For business translations, the primary requirement is outstanding quality, but equally important is the best value for money. German-Hungarian translations are available at Lector for as little as 2.59 HUF net per character.
Is there an official German translation?
Official translations are also produced by several translation agencies in the country, such as Lector. In such cases, the translation is stamped and signed to certify its accuracy, completeness and conformity with the original.
What is the difference between general and business German translation?
All good quality translations must be grammatically and substantively correct, but for business translations, the standards are even higher. It is important that these translations are produced by translators who are familiar with the language of the specialist fields. The translation of a German legal text can be as specialised as the localisation of a medical report or even a technical document. It is worth using a specialist translator.
Is there a German translation agency in Hungary?
In a globalised world, it is no longer the location of the service that matters, but the quality of the service provided. As in the case of German translations, it is the native translators, the years of professional experience and the thousands of documents translated that most distinguish translation agencies. It is worth looking for a German specialist translator like Lector Translation Agency.
Is it possible to get a native German translator to translate?
Yes, several of our colleagues are native German speakers, which ensures that their translations are both grammatically and substantively appropriate for a native German-speaking reader.
Did you know this about the German language?
- German is the mother tongue of 120 million people in Europe, the most widely spoken language in Europe, and the official language of Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, northern Italy, eastern France and parts of Belgium. It is the second most important language in the world, next to English.
- In science and technology, German is the second most important language in the world.
- In German, the different ways of greeting people tell you a lot about their origin. If someone enters a room and greets you with "Guten Tag!", you know that they are either from northern Germany or a foreigner. The only form of greeting used in Baden-Württemberg is "Grüß Gott!". A "Servus!" greeting indicates Austrian origin, while a "moin-moin!" greeting is most likely to be from Hamburg.
- Pronouns in German. It is worth learning the forms of verbs in German. It is considered very impolite to put anyone down. Germans have no problem in calling their colleagues, neighbours or dear acquaintances names. Despite this, relations between people are cordial and they give each other respect. In the German-speaking world, everyone from the age of 18 onwards is called everyone, both of the same age and of the same sex. No older person ever talks down to a younger person.
- In the broad sense, there are two main varieties of German (languages, dialects). Low German (Niederdeutsch or Plattdeutsch, also known as Nedderdüütsch or Plattdüütsch). In its sound system (and, in some dialects, in its grammar), Low German spoken in the north differs so significantly from "Hochdeutsch" spoken in the south that users of "Hochdeutsch" do not even understand it, and so today Low German is considered a language in its own right. The other variant of German in the narrower sense is one of the High Germanic languages.
