Brazilian Portuguese Translation Tips & Challenges

With 190 million people in Brazil speaking Portuguese, it is the official language of the country. With a focus on Brazilian Portuguese, our expert translators are skilled in applying the subtlest of nuances to create accurate, culturally appropriate translations.

As a Romance language with roots dating back to medieval times, Portuguese shares similarities with other languages, such as Italian, Spanish, and French.
Since it is such an expressive and poetic language, you can count on at least 25% more space to accommodate text for English to Brazilian Portuguese Translations.
Unlike in English, Portuguese nouns have gender which means associated adjectives, articles and verbs need to agree. Also, adjectives come after nouns, instead of before, as in English.
In Portuguese, there are 2 verbs meaning “to be.” “Ser” is used for permanent, unchanging things, and “estar” is for temporary things, such as mood

Voiceover

Professional Brazilian Portuguese Voiceover

With the rise and tremendous growth of personal devices, cloud communications, and Internet services, multimedia is an effective tool for engaging your audience through corporate narration, marketing, training and eLearning, games, podcasts, documentaries, and TV and radio dubbing. Andovar has the expertise to set you ahead of your competition with Brazilian Portuguese Translation services with this technology.

Our Portuguese speaking voice translators must undergo stringent testing that covers script comprehension, sight-reading, voice projection, articulation, and acting prowess. Through our process, we zero in on talent that is adept in engaging audiences for corporate communications, online primary education, advertising, and movies and series for TV and streaming services.

Our expert Brazilian Portuguese voice experts craft content that is emotionally compelling and easy to understand through the use of Portuguese scene-sync and lip-sync dubbing, narration, or UN-style recording, which lets you hear the original speaker with a translated voiceover on top. Our Portuguese translators preserve the meaning and intent of the original speech, especially when slang and colloquialisms are involved.

As further evidence of our competence, we use professional directors who maintain the artistic impact, cultural relevance, and technical accuracy of the original as they direct the talent. To ensure consistency of translation, pronunciation guides specific to the target area are available. There is a final and meticulous QC check before the final product is released. Our exacting standards attract companies including Ciena, Netflix, Hyatt, Hilton, and Wargaming to continue to return to us for their Brazilian Portuguese voiceover needs.

Brazilian Portuguese Website Translation Services

To enable their websites to reach Portuguese-speaking markets, companies like Agoda, Amway, Hatch, Spotify, and Qnet turn to Andovar. Our Brazilian Portuguese Translation services take technical, cultural, and linguistic nuances into account. Through our process of transcreation, your website will feel like it was originated in the target language while preserving your original business intent.

We support Content Management Services (CMS) Magento, Shopify, and WordPress that can all incorporate CMS plug-ins, TMS connectors, and APIs to improve content and save time. We do not simply translate the text; rather, the user interface, knowledge bases, ecommerce platforms, content repositories, and landing pages are localized. In addition, we index Portuguese SEO terms for easy searching for users.

We put our work through a number of QA checks to ensure it meets your goals for the target audience. These checks are for functionality and language accuracy. We also validate the source to ensure the website is visually appealing and works correctly in different browsers in different devices. Not only are our translators familiar with the details of website creation, we also have experts in the niche your online presence addresses.

Software

Brazilian Portuguese Software Translation Services

Where do Netsuite, Microsoft, and Symantec come for their Portuguese software translation services? They have all turned to Andovar. When it involves cloud-based, server-based, and mobile applications, these companies trust us because we have the linguistic sensitivity and technical expertise to advance their products into the Portuguese-speaking world.

Our professional Portuguese translators offer you the industry-specific skill to handle all software formats, such as user interface, help, and resource files. We depend on cutting-edge software localization technology and processes while maintaining technical accuracy through Multidimensional Quality Metrics (MQM) and QA testing.

Your choice: we can take charge of an entire project, or we can meet with your technical team to educate them on the software issues involved with translation, which simply converts documents and components visible to users, plus localization that adapts the software for use in Portuguese and other language.

We cover the gamut of issues, ranging from the simple: how the meaning of color schemes and icons differ across different Portuguese-speaking cultures, to the complex: how to create resources from executable libraries so they are more easily translated. We can help you plan and budget your localization efforts, design QA tests for localization, and develop an internationalization process from the ground up.

Games

Brazilian Portuguese Game Translation Services

With 110 million gamers in Latin America, Mexico has the largest number followed by Brazil. The total gaming market in Brazil is estimated to be 1.66 billion in American dollars. Latin America ranks 4th after China, Europe, and North America. Gaming is a market that continue to grow at a record pace, expanding in technology to include PCs, consoles, mobile and handheld devices, MMOGs, and Virtual Reality.

Andovar’s Portuguese Game Translation Services relies on gamers who adapt your product to the culture and linguistics of your market while preserving its inherent context and message. Some of our gaming customers include Netease, PUBG, EA, Square Enix, Gameloft, and Line.

Our translation services for this challenging niche include:

Into English

Brazilian Portuguese to English Translation Services

Our Portuguese to English translations of your website, marketing efforts, and product brochures are so accurate and culturally appropriate that most Portuguese-language suppliers and customers think you are a Portuguese company. Emails, contracts, documents, and other communications sent to your English-speaking staff are also in Portuguese.

Andovar’s Portuguese to English translation services make all these Portuguese-language communications understandable. Our professional translators and editors are native English speakers and fluent in Portuguese. They are also experts in your field, so they can capture the meaning, content, and technical accuracy of the original source.

Although digital files ease the translation process, we can easily convert printed materials through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) Technology. We also manage subtitles in Over-The-Top (OTT) content that needs to be converted from Portuguese to English.

Another use for our Portuguese to English translation service is to back-translate medical, legal/litigation or other corporate communications to ensure linguistic accuracy. Gisting may work for general understanding, but only human translators can capture the nuances and cultural subtleties of literary prose or technical descriptions. Using document re-creation and PDF translation, we ensure that the translated versions come as close to the original as possible.

Subtitles

Brazilian Portuguese Subtitle Translation Services

It’s true that online translators do a fair job of translating English subtitles to Portuguese on YouTube videos, but they often fail at the subtleties. Only a human being can recognize the subtle things and apply the proper translation.

Andovar relies on professionals who deliver Portuguese subtitle translation services and preserve the original intent, artistic tone, and linguistic accuracy of the original subtitles. This is why iflix, Netflix, Netease, and Disney + tap us to translate their streaming services, corporate communications, YouTube videos, and OTT content.

Just like the original, our translated subtitles move at a pace that keeps up with the speaker. Because we make them as concise as possible, they take up a minimal amount of screen space, a challenge when Brazilian Portuguese Translations are up to 20 percent longer than English.

We support all subtitle file formats including SRT, TTML, SCC, VTT, and more. Our Portuguese translators handle captions, SDH subtitles, and template creation, through various platforms and tools. We are even skilled at translating slang and colloquial speech so they are culturally meaningful and understandable in specific Portuguese-speaking areas.

Documents

Brazilian Portuguese Document Translation Services

Despite the proliferation of online information, many businesses still thrive on the use of paper documents. When you need your documents to reach a Portuguese-speaking audience, Andovar’s Portuguese document translation services deliver your solution.

Whether for a one-time announcement or multiple government reports that must be filed each year, our professional translators ensure your brand’s consistency. We ensure that your message maintains its original tone, context, and intent as it penetrates the Portuguese-speaking market.

When it comes to publishing your documents, you don’t need to worry as we take care of every step in the publishing process including digitizing printed or hand-written sources through OCR technology, translating and editing the source files, designing the layout, and digitally publishing the results in multiple applications such as Microsoft Office, PowerPoint, InDesign, and Illustrator. We even adapt your graphics to impact your target niche while being culturally sensitive.

Companies including Siemens, Minor Group, Chevron, and Transocean come to us for their document needs which include operator and service manuals, technical instructions, Standard Operating Procedures, and marketing materials. We translate all documents quickly, accurately, and cost-effectively.

Elearning

Brazilian Portuguese elearning Translation Services

Businesses with a global audience must ensure a consistent message is delivered about their products and services to their team members and customers around the world. To make that happen in Portuguese-speaking locations, companies as diverse as Docebo, Hyatt, Hilton, learning.com, Cegos, and Learnship turned to Andovar for Brazilian Portuguese eLearning translation services.

We make sure that your employees, clients, and students learn content at their own pace. This avoids the time and effort that are required for either an in-person instructor or a live translator who simultaneously interprets the words of the English-speaking teacher.

Our localization of your e-learning content includes culturally relevant references to ensure that your learners are neither confused nor offended. We translate English slang or colloquialisms to expressions that are more appropriate for the target area.

Our expertise encompasses Learning Management Systems, video content, software, and corporate e-learning applications such as Articulate Rise, Articulate 360, Lectora, Captivate and more. Our turnkey solutions cover text translation, voiceovers, and SCORM-compliant materials such as quizzes, role-plays, and presentations. What we produce undergoes rigorous integration and testing to ensure that you receive the same results in Portuguese as you do in English.
