VILLAM Language Services Ltd. is one of the leading providers of language solutions in Central-Europe. We've made it our mission to address all of our customers' business-related needs, helping them engage with their peers, increase revenue, and drive efficiency through cutting-edge content solutions and localization technology.
VILLAM enables more than 9000 Central-European brands to increase international market share and engage their customers in local markets worldwide. Most of our clients operate in the European Union, especially in Germany, Slovakia, Romania, Ukraine, Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia and Austria.
Using VILLAM's innovative translation technology platform (including a fully integrated, proprietary translation management system) and the easy to use, award-winning online customer service, we provide custom translation, interpreting, online marketing, software and media localization solutions that ensure the trust and recognition of our clients.
VILLAM applies a sustainable business model and offers high-tech as well as traditional language services to customers. VILLAM is unique in offering custom services and working predominantly to end clients (instead of other language service providers). We are aware of the new economics of translation and are prepared to adopt new behaviors of sharing and collaboration. Language technology and automation progress towards the abundance in supply and eradicate the need for human repetitive work. Linguistic quality, cutting-edge technology, and competitive word rates are our present, but global business impact, data, novel business models, and value-based pricing are our future.
VILLAM was founded by Tünde Gál-Berey, who currently acts as CEO of the company. She has been bootstapping the company from day one, reinvesting profits and enabling market-leading growth. Tünde is engaged in refining solutions and introducing innovations in the business and technological processes. She is also very active in the language expert training, and considered to be one of the most influential professionals in the Hungarian language industry.
Our wonderful team of 22 includes localization specialists, language experts, academic linguists, marketing and business consultants, researchers, software developers and multilingual desktop publishers - all creative capacity at VILLAM's Budapest office.
VILLAM operates with its proprietary cloud technology on an innovative platform which enables our global workforce of more than 2100 language professionals to work seamlessly together. This award-winning platform ensures efficiency and transparency throughout all business processes.
We believe in technology and the innovative 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 has also became an essential service provider to enterprise clients with increasing monthly recurring revenue potential. VILLAM aims to maintain its cutting-edge translation company status in Central-Europe and become a competitive global player.
Diversity and inclusion
VILLAM’s diversity and inclusion statement can be summarized in four words: We are all in! These words relate to our company mission, and the actions we are taking towards building a more equitable environment.
We are aware that national politics, some more than others, are not creating a nurturing environment for equity, diversity and inclusion recently. It is important to realize that it does not come from the people of the countries but from their autocratic governments. At VILLAM we believe in democracy and in human rights and we act accordingly, regardless of the circumstances.
Diverse teams build better solutions. Global customers’ requirements are complex and only a team with diverse knowledge can create services to fit these needs. At VILLAM, we focus on complex and diverse knowledge and that requires openness to everything. Our team and company culture celebrates the sense of inclusion in ideas and perspectives.
We never base hiring decisions on stereotypes and assumptions about a person's race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability. VILLAM’s work on diversity and inclusion starts internally and we use the results to create a positive impact on what we do externally. This principle is true to our linguist workforce as well. We believe we can do our custom jobs better with colleagues who have different backgrounds and life experience. It’s only fair if we create an environment of inclusion.
Mergers & acquisitions
VILLAM's award winning platform and professional business management enables us to acquire companies with adjacent services. Also, we are open to form joint ventures and benefit from emerging synergies of partner companies.
