We have introduced our new translation management system, XTRF!

Post date: Monday, April 3rd, 2017 - 15:00

Today, Hunnect has started using XTRF, a translation management system (TMS) that fully takes advantage of the latest cloud-based technologies. The change does not only affect us: our clients and freelance linguists will also experience its advantages thanks to the Client Portal and Vendor Portal specifically designed for them, but also through the online Quote Request form – all of which can be reached directly from our home page. Submitting a translation request online has never been easier – but project management and the handling of vendor issues have also become simpler and faster compared to our previous TMS. Consequently, all our partners will spare some valuable time by using XTRF.

Introducing the new Hunnect logo

Post date: Friday, March 17th, 2017 - 14:00

The eagle-eyed may have noticed that Hunnect has introduced a redesigned logo containing our new slogan ’Making sense of the world’. The change is not without reason: we felt that this slogan is the best way to express our philosophy, and it should be represented along with our logo in every instance. ’Making sense of the world’ means for us that the primary objective of a good translation company is to transfer not just a textual message to the target audience, but also the real meaning, the world views and the intentions behind that message. Hunnect is proud to connect its clients to millions of readers, users and customers worldwide.

We are still Hungary's third biggest translation company!

The newest, March 10 issue of the bi-weekly English-language economic magazine of Hungary, the Budapest Business Journal has published a comprehensive, detailed annex about the state and the perspectives of the Hungarian translation industry, similarly to previous years. The issue also contains the ranking of the Hungarian translation companies based on revenue, where Hunnect has again finished on the elegant 3rd place, showing a 6% growth compared to last year. The first and second places are respectively held by the state-owned OFFI Inc. and by Amplexor Hungary Ltd., which is the affiliate of the Luxemburg-based LSP, Amplexor. Thus, it is safe to say that Hunnect is the biggest translation company owned by private entrepreneurs in Hungary. Our goal this year is to further catch up with the leader and the runner-up, so that we can become the inevitable Hungarian language service provider for the private sector in this very competitive, ever-changing industry.

Our Life Science Department has grown again this year! With the addition of QA specialist and translator specialized in life sciences Eszter Rédei as full time employee – after she had spent several months at Hunnect as a trainee – our team has become even bigger and stronger. Managing dozens of pharmaceutical and medical translation projects daily into Hungarian and other Central and Eastern European languages, the Life Science team is a real success story for us – even more so that Éva Tóth-Tölgyesi, the Head of the Department has recently won the “Trust” category in the Most translator and interpreter friendly project manager of 2016 awards, organized by the Association of Freelance Translators and Interpreters of Hungary. We are looking forward to the challenges that this year is going to bring to us.

On November 29th, the first Hungary-Bangaldesh Business Forum took place in Budapest with such esteemed guests as the Prime Minister of Bangladesh, Mrs. Seikh Hasina. Our General Director, Peter Lepahin represented Hunnect at the business meetings and learned a lot about the interesting possibilities this Asian country has to offer. Although in most people’s eyes Bangladesh is a country mainly involved in agriculture and ready made garments (no. 2 in the world), it has a lot of other key industries, such as pharma, ITC and tourism. The event was a genuinely cheerful and optimistic meeting of the two countries, which can and will cooperate a lot more in the future. Hunnect will be ready to help any international companies of both countries achieve in each other’s market.

This year, Hunnect organized its Vendor Day for the first time. The event included both professional presentations and leisure activities, so that the participating translators, proofreaders and translation students can develop professionally and at the same time grow together as a team. Hunnect employees held several presentations in various topics such as orthography, the special requirements of certain subject areas, technical tips and tricks etc. Moreover, several sport activities —such as squash and table tennis— were offered. Those visitors who were not familiar with the city of Szeged, could enjoy a guided sightseeing tour on the following day. According to the feedback, the Vendor Day was a unanimous success – thus we are intending to make it happen again.
 
See you again in 2017!

Hunnect proudly accepted the participation at the “Cavalcade of Languages” hosted by the Foreign Language Centre of the University of Szeged. Ms. Zita Nógrádi (Vendor Manager) and Ms. Viktória Fehér (Talent Manager) held a presentation titled Translator Careers for generation Y”, for the audience of high school students, university students and lecturers. Zita gave a brief introduction of the language industry — including its beauty besides its high expectations. We highlighted the importance of top-quality work and described the interesting and diverse challenges a language expert might face on a regular basis. We were happy to see that quite a few enthusiastic students handed in their CV applying for our apprentice program.

Hunnect is grateful to the organizers of this event!
