Company overview

We enable more than 8000 Hungarian brands to increase international market share and engage their customers in local markets worldwide. Over 70 of our 40 000 customers are on the TOP 500 list of Hungarian companies. Our intent to become a global LSP/MLV has already manifested in the increasing number of business clients benefit from our services in the European Union, especially in Germany, Slovakia, Romania, Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia and Austria. We also very much appreciate our local private clients in Hungary and help them communicate in international matters.

Our translation company offers translation in many language pairs in the combination of ca. 52 languages, and most of the pairs contain the Hungarian language as the source or the target language. Concerning the Hungarian language, we have a competitive advantage in quality and prices on the world market for language solutions since many of the translators working for our company use Hungarian as their mother tongue.

Using our innovative translation technology platform and our easy to use online customer service, we provide translation, interpreting, online marketing, software localization and media localization solutions that ensure the trust and recognition of our clients’ foreign parties. Overall consistency and local relevancy are the foundation of our text-based services.

Investment strategy, Mergers & acquisitions

We believe in technology and the innovational value of being open to the new. The challenge of the language industry is to provide better quality faster at a smaller cost. These three elements can only be met by continuous innovation to boost productivity. At the same time improvements are needed in the processes. VILLAM Language Services aims to become a cutting-edge translation company in Central-Europe as well as a competitive global player.

Our strategy is open to form joint ventures and benefit from emerging synergies of partner companies. We feel fit enough to acquire and reorganize similar companies. Also, if we see the future of our company better off under the roof of a larger organization, we would consider merging our resources into something bigger and better, which we can be a part of.
