Translating Portuguese – Knowing the differences

Most people realize that Portuguese is spoken in Portugal, where it’s the national language. However, its influences can be heard far beyond the European country. Portuguese is the official language of Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and Sao Tome and Principe. It also enjoys co-official language status in Macau, China and East Timor in Southeast Asia.

Portuguese is the third most spoken European language and the second most spoken language in Latin America (behind Spanish). All corners of the world have some sort of Portuguese influence, making it a highly diverse language.

With so much variation, how do you find the right translation?

The specific branch of Portuguese you’ll need for your translation relies heavily on the specific area you’re trying to target. The translations you require to target a Brazilian market will vary from the translations you’ll need for a European market. At Metro, we research your market thoroughly, not only to provide you the right dialect, but also to factor in social and cultural nuances.

We match you with a translator who has in-depth knowledge of the region or culture you’re reaching, so that your message will be accurately conveyed without compromising its original meaning.
