English to Portuguese Translation Projects
We assist organizations with documentation or marketing material (e.g. brochures, manuals, website content, PowerPoint presentations, product labeling, etc.) that are written in Portuguese and require accurate translation into English.
Of course, in addition to English to Portuguese and Portuguese to English translation assignments, we can also assist you with the translation of the world's most popular languages to and from Portuguese: Arabic ↔ Portuguese; Spanish ↔ Portuguese; French ↔ Portuguese; German ↔ Portuguese; Japanese ↔ Portuguese; Portuguese ↔ Portuguese; Russian ↔ Portuguese; Korean ↔ Portuguese; Italian ↔ Portuguese; Hindi ↔ Portuguese; to name but the most popular.... We can source translation expertise for virtually any language pair.
Portuguese Language Style
Our translators, editors and proofreaders render well-written and clearly understandable texts. We place a high value on rendering a finished product that is faithful to the language style of the original text.
Portuguese to English Translation Projects
We assist businesses in finding the best available Portuguese to English language translation resources – including experienced Portuguese language translators (native-speaking Portuguese if appropriate or required).
In our experience, a Portuguese language native-speaker may not necessarily be the right translator for the job. (See: Common myths and misconceptions about translation.) Though a native-speaker may be preferable for certain translation assignments, having Portuguese as a native language may not 'translate into' Portuguese language expertise (pun intended). An experienced linguist with strong Portuguese and English language translation credentials, in-depth experience and professional credentials, regardless of native language, may often prove to be a better choice.
Identifying and securing the services of the appropriate Portuguese language resources is what we do! (Refer to our Portuguese translation assignment process for information on our Portuguese translation project management process).
In a nutshell, we use professional translators who have a solid mastery of the Portuguese language (grammar, spelling, cultural nuances) and a solid understanding of the subject matter.
Once we are confident that the appropriate freelance resources have been identified and certain that we can honour the project deadline, we submit a quote for the translation assignment.
If we cannot secure the appropriate resources, we will do our best to refer you to Portuguese translation sources of information that we have confidence in.

• Rosetta Stone Version 3: PORTUGUESE Level 1 with Audio Companion
Portuguese is a Romance language that originated in what is now Galicia (Spain) and northern Portugal from the Latin spoken by romanized Pre-Roman peoples of the Iberian Peninsula (namely the Gallaeci, the Lusitanians, the Celtici and the Conii) about 2000 years ago. It spread worldwide in the 15th and 16th centuries as Portugal established a colonial and commercial empire (1415-1999) which spanned from Brazil in the Americas to Goa in India and Macau in China, in fact it was used exclusively on the island of Sri Lanka as the lingua franca for almost 350 years. During that time, many creole languages based on Portuguese also appeared around the world, especially in Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean.
Today it is one of the world's major languages, ranked 6th according to number of native speakers (approximately 177 million). It is the language with the largest number of speakers in South America, spoken by nearly all of Brazil's population, which amounts to over 51% of the continent's population even though it is the only Portuguese-speaking nation in the Americas. It is also a major lingua franca in Portugal's former colonial possessions in Africa. It is the official language of ten countries, also being co-official with Spanish and French in Equatorial Guinea, with Cantonese Chinese in the Chinese special administrative region of Macau, and with Tetum in East Timor. There are sizable communities of Portuguese-speakers in various regions of North America, notably in the United States (New Jersey, New England and south Florida) and in Ontario, Canada.
