Document translation question

I have a document I need translated from Hungarian to English and it’s above my current fluency level. The document is about 38 pages and contains a set of building/apartment rules.

So far all the translation estimates we’ve received have been very expensive. Any suggestions on how to get this translated for a reasonable price would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry, 38 pages of legalize will be expensive. A cheap solution (such as Google Translate) is likely to be inaccurate.

There's not many people who can speak Hungarian and English fluently. It takes a long time to reach that level, so you're not just paying for their time, but also the time it took them to acquire that knowledge, which is why it's so expensive. I hope that makes sense. Sorry I can't be of more help. Maybe try this subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/translator/

Note that if this is to be used by official instances you will need a government certified translator. Any translation done by a non-certified translator, no matter how good, will not be accepted.

Oh, this is certainly not for any legal purpose. It's simply for us to have a better understanding of our buildings rules/policies. The document was already reviewed from a legal perspective.
