Subtitling in Hungary


Let's face it- it's challenging enough to come across a reliable subtitling service provider online. But try finding one that can truly convey the authentic experience with your content in Hungarian!

There is a commonly adopted subtitle development process that all subtitling companies follow. For a start, customer content is reviewed, and professional audiovisual translators are assigned. Then English Master Templates are created, translated into Hungarian, and proofread by captionists. Finally, the Hungarian subtitles or captions are QCed and delivered in the requested subtitle format. And following this workflow should be enough to transcend the authentic content feel in Hungarian.

But there's a catch.

The original content has been produced in another country, within a different cultural context and simply translating and subtitling it in Hungarian language is not enough to convey its creative intent. In result, the translated version fails to engage the Hungarian viewers and very successful TV shows, films, commercials, video games or other media end up as mediocre for the Hungarian audience. 


To help you transcend the original experience with your content and achieve a native feel, we apply a culture first approach- we craft and deliver Hungarian subtitles that consider all local norms and traditions to create a culturally relevant and immersive viewer experience for Hungary.


GoPhrazy provides Hungarian subtitling services through our native subtitle translators for the needs of your TV, films, cartoons, animations, e-learning videos, commercials, and video games. Here's the deal- it takes just 3 easy steps with us to make your subtitles perfect for Hungary:

Hungarian closed captioning


Improve the accessibility of your content in Hungary by taking advantage of our Hungarian closed captioning services! While subtitles are created for hearing viewers and only reflect dialogue, our Hungarian closed captioning includes all audio elements to provide more context and enhance the content experience for viewers with hearing disability. We cover any sound in the video that is not visually evident and develop Hungarian closed captions with the assumption that the viewer is restricted from hearing the audio. We split the transcribed text into chunks (caption frames) and enable your Hungarian audience to follow the audio, video or captions interchangeably. Thus, we improve the accessibility and overall viewer experience for Hungarian audience with hearing impairment who depend on captions to understand the video. As these captions are enclosed in video stream and can be turned on and off at viewer's comfort, they are named "closed captions".


Hungarian open captioning


In case you need to improve accessibility for your videos, cinematic and theatrical content, our Hungarian open captioning services are the perfect match for you. Unlike closed captions, open captions are embedded (burnt-in) the media file and become an inseparable feature of the video. They cannot be switched on and off like closed captions but on the other side have other benefits. They are easier to use, eliminate the need to manage separate files and inconsistencies among various media players. They enable publishers to control caption size and style and (if the text is generated properly) come in sync with video while not requiring a special software for playback.


Hungarian SDH subtitling


Subtitling for the deaf and hard of hearing (or HoH subtitling) quickly becomes a media accessibility standard in Hungary to respond to emerging regulations. It provides the closest-to-equal experience with your content to the Hungarian audience that suffers of hearing loss and combines both subtitle and caption content into a single file that is then translated into Hungarian. SDH include dialogue transcription, speaker IDs, audio description and could be placed anywhere on the screen to follow the sound positioning. While SDH includes audience with hearing loss, it also improves entertainment value and adds flexibility to education and information resources.


SDH are particularly designed for deaf, Deaf or hard of hearing audience.


  • Deaf with lower case "d" refers to viewers that cannot hear but can speak
  • Deaf with upper case "D" refers to viewers with hearing loss that prefer "sign language"
  • Hard of hearing refers to viewers with any level of hearing impairment


Led by exceptional people and supported by a state-of-the-art technology, we deliver Hungarian captions in a quick, responsive, reliable, convenient, consistent, transparent, and risk-free manner across various industries, while keeping you informed at every step of the way with your project.

About Hungarian language


Hungarian is a unique and fascinating language spoken by approximately 10 million people, primarily in Hungary and parts of neighboring countries. Hungarian belongs to the Finno-Ugric language family, which is distinct from the Indo-European languages. It shares some similarities with Finnish and Estonian, as they are also part of the same language family. Hungarian has an agglutinative grammar, meaning that words are formed by adding suffixes to the root. This allows for complex word formation and enables the expression of detailed grammatical information within a single word. Hungarian employs a system of vowel harmony, where vowels within a word must harmonize in terms of frontness or backness. Hungarian verbs are highly inflected, undergoing extensive conjugation based on tense, mood, person, and number. The language also has a complex system of verb prefixes and suffixes. Hungarian has a rich vocabulary with a tendency for word compounding and word formation. This allows for the creation of specific terms and expressions, giving the language a descriptive and expressive character. Hungarian language plays a crucial role in Hungarian culture and national identity. Hungarian literature, with notable writers like Sándor Márai, has made significant contributions to world literature.


About Hungarian culture


Hungarian culture is characterized by its unique traditions, artistic expressions, and a deep sense of national pride. Traditional music, dance, and costumes play a significant role in cultural celebrations and festivals. Hungarian cuisine is flavorful and hearty, known for its use of paprika, meat dishes, and savory pastries. Goulash, lángos (deep-fried dough), and chimney cake (kürtőskalács) are popular Hungarian culinary delights. Hungary is famous for its thermal baths, which have been part of Hungarian culture for centuries. Classical music composers like Franz Liszt and Béla Bartók have made significant contributions to the world of music. Hungarian art is known for its unique style, with artists like Mihály Munkácsy and István Csók gaining international recognition. Hungary celebrates a wide range of festivals and celebrations throughout the year. The Budapest Spring Festival, Sziget Festival, and the Busójárás Carnival are just a few examples of the diverse cultural events that showcase Hungarian traditions and artistic performances. The country is home to numerous historic landmarks, including the magnificent Parliament Building in Budapest, the medieval town of Eger, and the enchanting Lake Balaton.
