A short history of the Hungarian language
The Hungarians originally came from central Asia, conquering the Carpathian Basin in the 9th century. It is believed that the Uralic languages originally came from the Ural Mountains in western Russia. The first written records of Old Hungarian date back to the 11th century.
The first book printed in Hungarian was in 1533. By the 17th century, the influence of other languages such as German, French, Italian and Slavonic languages was evident. Many Turkish words were borrowed during the Ottoman occupation of Hungary between 1541 and 1699.
Hungarian became the official language of Hungary in 1844, and became further standardised during the 19th and 20th centuries.
Hungarian is the official language of Hungary. It is recognised as a minority language in Romania, Ukraine, Croatia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia, Austria and the Czech Republic.
Hungarian is one of the official languages of the European Union.
How many people speak Hungarian as their first language?
It is estimated that there are around 15 million Hungarian speakers in the world – half in Hungary and the other half in Romania, Slovakia, Serbia, Ukraine, Austria, Croatia and Slovenia, as well in the United States, Canada and Israel.
The vast majority of the population of Hungary speaks Hungarian, but approximately 5% speak Romany.
Did you know…
- The name Hungary is thought to derive from a semi-nomadic tribe called the Huns (as in Attila the Hun) who lived throughout central and south-eastern Europe. However, Hungarians themselves actually call their country Magyar, after the people who settled there in the 10th century.
- The Uralic language family consists of 38 living languages, which range in number of speakers from just a handful (Votian) to 15 million (Hungarian).
- The Hungarian language, so unusual compared to other European languages, has acquired some ardent fans over the years. George Bernard Shaw said: “After studying the Hungarian language for years, I can confidently conclude that had Hungarian been my mother tongue, it would have been more precious. Simply because through this extraordinary, ancient and powerful language it is possible to precisely describe the tiniest differences and the most secretive tremors of emotions.”
- There are several mutually intelligible Hungarian dialects, including Alföld, West Danube, Danube-Tisza, King’s Pass Hungarian, Northeast Hungarian, Northwest Hungarian, Székely and West Hungarian. There is one dialect called Hungarian Csángó that is quite different – closer to medieval Hungarian.
Since the early 1990s Hungary has made the transition from a socialist economy to a market economy. It has a per capita income of almost two-thirds that of the EU average.
More than 80% of Hungarian GDP is accounted for by the private sector. Major industries include mining, metallurgy, construction materials, pharmaceuticals, processed foods, motor vehicles and textiles.
Hungary is a member of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development and the World Trade Organisation. It joined the European Union in 2004.

I use Matinee a lot for subtitling projects
I use Matinee for a lot of subtitling projects and they never fail to meet the deadlines. Great customer service and fast responses. Well done to the entire team.

Friendly and efficient service
The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
