Board

Proford’s board was elected on 16 January 2019 for a three-year term.

Message from the chairman

Even after 20 years, I still find language services an exciting business – perhaps because I like the idea of connecting the open economy of a small country with the world. The translation industry is very small both in Hungary and in global terms. However, it is almost a textbook example of a perfectly competitive market, with its low barriers to entry, vast numbers of suppliers and fierce competition that spurs providers to constantly innovate and always increase their efficiency.

Proford’s members are language service providers that are local players competing on a global market. They are open to the world, do not shy away from new issues and challenges, and believe that in the long run, it is only high quality that makes for sustainable, mutually beneficial business relations.

Proford’s mission, in addition to traditional trade advocacy, is to open up future opportunities, prompt dialogue and provide learning opportunities for its members and other industry players. We can learn from our clients, from our translators and from one another. In other words, Proford pays attention, asks questions and tries to give relevant answers.

Proford is an exciting association because it is at once a tradespeople’s guild that respects and draws on its traditions and that does not allow amateurs in its ranks, as well as a 21st century innovative workshop where competitors can put their heads together and, if they see fit, join forces to achieve far more together than what they would be capable of individually.
