L.C. Betéti Társaság provides translation and interpretation services to the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA), the International Training Centre of the Ministry of Justice and Law Enforcement (MoJ ITC), and the Central European Police Academy (CEPA) run by the same ministry. The International Programme Office of the MOJ ITC, which hosted the series of events called PHARE-ENFOPOL 118 – with professional supervision from AEPC seated in Holland – has always been a key client to us. The above institutions have placed orders with our company for no less than 4500 interpreter days and the translation of the related background materials – approximately 19 thousand pages.

Since 1999, we regularly render translation and interpreting for OPEL SE Kft./General Motors Kft and GM Daewoo Kft./Chevrolet Kft., out of and into each of the global languages (English, German, Spanish, French), as well as also rare languages (Romanian, Serbian, Croatian, Slovenian, etc.). The subjects have primarily included economics, controlling, finance, accounting, technical subjects, customs, and law. In the past years, we completed a minimum of 80 interpreter days and the translation and proofreading of associated materials – approximately 5000 pages.

A milestone for the Company was the tender “HU98/IB/JH/01 – Training in areas of combating criminal activity” in February 2001, which brought us nearly 2200 pages of translation in the field of law enforcement, public administration, finance, financial crime, money laundering, accounting, state administration, prosecution of crime, as well as law out of and into Hungarian and German, English and rare languages, in addition to 250 interpreter days. In the course of translating documents and cooperating with technical proofreaders, our translators have acquired a detailed in-depth knowledge of the technical terms used in law enforcement (primarily terrorism, cross-border crime and financial crime investigation, witness protection, cooperation between the ministries of the interior and justice), and in other areas of internal affairs and finance (Hungarian law, EU acquis communautaire, aliens policing, and investigation by the Customs and Excise Guard and the tax authority).

As a result of an open public procurement tender, our company became the exclusive provider of translation for, a the Ministry of the Interior (currently called the Ministry of Local Governments and Regional Development) in 2004. Translation rendered for the International Department and the EU Cooperation Bureau of the MoI under this project exceeded 2500 pages. Languages included English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, in addition to rare languages.
