European & Brazilian Portuguese Language Services
Portuguese, an official language in nine countries
Portuguese is the official language in nine countries: Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, and the island-nation of São Tomé and Príncipe. It is also an official language in the Special Administrative Region of Macau. Portuguese has official status in international organisations like the European Union, Mercosur, the Organisation of American States, and the African Union.
With over 270 million speakers, Portuguese is the most widely spoken language in the southern hemisphere, and the world’s fifth most spoken language. A recent study by UNESCO declared that Portuguese is, along with Spanish, the language with most potential for international growth. Furthermore, the Brazilian economy is one the world’s largest and future projections predict that it will continue to expand in the short-medium term.
As such the demand for Portuguese translations is constantly growing and LinguaVox provides hundreds of clients with their frequent and growing translation needs into Brazilian Portuguese and Portuguese for Portugal.
European, African and Brazilian Portuguese native translators
With such a widespread reach, it is not surprising that there are numerous dialectal variations within the Portuguese language.
Despite recent spelling reforms to homogenise the language globally, there are still significant differences between European Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese. The two variants differ widely in terms of spelling, pronunciation, the use of tenses, and vocabulary. Some of the most significant variations include the use of você instead of tu to refer to the 2nd person, differences in word order, and the omission of the definite article. Also, and despite a recent orthographic agreement, there are two orthographic systems applicable to Portuguese. Some publishers and website owners even opt for translating into two different Portuguese versions: one aimed at the Brazilian population, and one targeting Portuguese speakers in Europe.
While Portuguese speakers in Brazil and Europe can generally understand each other, using a European Portuguese translation in Brazil (or vice versa) would present readers with an unnecessary foreign feel. In addition, there are important cultural and geographical references that would be missed by readers of each Portuguese variant.
If the translation is to be used in African countries such as Angola, it is important to know that spelling reforms which have been adopted in Portugal and Brazil are not as widespread and often the pre-reform spelling is preferred.
At LinguaVox translation company we ensure that our Portuguese translations are carried out by in-country translators, as part of a team of expert localisers, to ensure that your Portuguese translation is suitable for the target audience.
