Company history

The founding of the Galloman Translation and Interpreting Agency can be traced back to 2002. By providing Hungarian-French-English translation and interpretation services, the French-specialized agency’s aim is to help companies successfully grow in a foreign-language environment.

Our founders also come from business backgrounds (where they gained experience in working with agencies), thus they can exactly determine the need of clients. Thus a customer-driven attitude has become the DNA of the Galloman team. We seek to create long-term collaborations based on mutual confidence and personalized, flexible service.

Our translators and interpreters combine linguistic skills with qualifications in the areas of economics/technology/law/science/medicine, etc., and this creates a solid base for our professional translation and interpretation services.

Our values and guiding principles

The main expertise of Galloman is in French language and culture. We believe that cultural identity is a strength, and that it is our mission – as the French-specialized translation and interpreting agency in Hungary – to build a bridge between French and Hungarian culture and business with our professional services. Our goal is to create a world in which our clients from different countries and cultures can understand each other as if they spoke the same language. Ensuring seamless communication is the value we add.

One part of this involves determining the complex needs of our clients and providing fully customized service. Our motto is based on the same idea: understanding the business processes of our clients is the basis of our work. Therefore, we do not just translate words but communicate meanings.
