Portuguese Translation Services

Why is there a Need for Portuguese

Portuguese is spoken by more than 250 million people worldwide. It is the official language in Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, Timor Leste, São Tomé and Príncipe, and is spoken in several other countries as well. The largest Portuguese speaking population is in Brazil, with a population of approximately 200 million. Portugal, where Portuguese originated has a population of about 10 million. Portuguese is also one of the top five most used languages on the internet with approximately 82 million users.

What Is Important to Know About Portuguese Translations?

Brazilian and European Portuguese have differences in vocabulary, pronunciation, syntax and grammar. These differences can be particularly noticed in the IT area. For instance, in Portugal, "screen" is translated as "ecrã," whereas in Brazil it is translated as "tela." In Portugal, a mouse is called "rato," but people in Brazil use the English word "mouse." There are countless differences and the same happens within Brazil. In a country as wide as a continent it is important to be aware of regional variations and this requires cultural knowledge as well as a solid linguistic base.
