How much text is there? If it's a modest amount, then posting to ViewMate as Julia suggested can work. There are also Facebook forums where volunteers are doing an incredible service helping people understand Hungarian documents.

If there are lots of pages, it may be beyond what you can expect volunteers to respond to. If it's poetry, you may also want to capture some of the artistry, and not just the gist of the names and topics.

I have about 80 letters my grandmother wrote to my father, and I found a translator on www.fiverr.com that I paid for the work. I sent samples to a few of the people offering services, and picked the best result to send the rest of the letters to, and in my case I was super satisfied. I knew my grandmother when I was very little so I was able to "hear" her personality in the best of the translations. If you want the name and link of the specific translator on Fiverr that I ended up using, send me a private message.
