Alapító okiratban, a társaság törzstőkéjének összegét kiírták számmal is. Tippem a "that is" lenne, mint "azaz", de szeretném kikérni véleményüket.

English translation:five hundred thousand forints (Ft 500,000)
Explanation:
This is the most common format in contracts. No "that is."

(the part in parentheses could also read "500,000 HUF)

Parentheses: Legal Contracts

Parentheses enclose a number confirming a written number, as in legal contracts.

Examples:

* The contract stipulates that the job must be completed within ninety (90) days.
* When we get together to sign the contract, the balance will be due in full: twenty-two thousand, fifty dollars and no cents ($22,050.00).
