Professional Experience

The need for software localization increased significantly in the first half of the 1990’s, and Multi-Lingua was quick to participate in this new industry: the agency translated the Hungarian versions of both Windows 2.0 and WordPerfect 6.0.

By 1995, Multi-Lingua was applying the rather new technology of computer aided translation tools. It started off with Trados. Besides the software of Nokia and Motorola mobile phones, Multi-Lingua’s other large software localization projects included the software used by HP printers, Sony, Dell, and various cameras.
Multi-Lingua has gained extensive experience in simultaneous interpreting at multilingual conferences in a wide variety of topics, including conferences on automated teller machines, medical conferences, congresses on protocol, and IT business meetings.
