Portuguese Translation

Portuguese is used in Portugal and its islands, Brazil, parts of Africa (Mozambique, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Sao Tome and Principe) and former Portuguese colonies in South East Asia.

 

Written Portuguese

European Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese have significant differences of  vocabulary, spelling,  grammar and style.  For example.

Second person verbal forms are seldom used in Brazilian Portuguese.
Pronunciation is different.
The word order is more flexible in Brazilian Portuguese.
Spelling is different e.g. aguentar/agüentar,   óptima/ótima,   accionista/acionista.

African and Asian Portuguese bear similarities to European Portuguese.

Therefore the target audience needs to be considered when translating Portuguese.

 

Spoken Portuguese

As above there are significant differences in pronunciation and grammar.
