Translation Tips

Portuguese Translation Tips & Challenges

Both English and Portuguese are rooted in Latin, making them easier to translate into one another. However, while there are many grammatical similarities to translating Portuguese to English or vice versa, there are still significant differences, both grammatically and culturally that should be accounted for with any Portuguese translation services you require.

In total, Portuguese is the official language in countries that are home to more than 190 million residents worldwide.
Similar to the US, Canada, and other European countries, Portuguese also varies throughout Portugal, Brazil, and other South American countries. Working together with native Portuguese speakers in the area you intend to target is highly advisable with any Portuguese translating services you request.
Many of the words in Portuguese are derived from Arabic, French, and Greek origins, in addition to Latin.
There are three descriptors for words in Portuguese: muted, open, and closed. 
Individuals who are from Brazil and speak Portuguese are more likely to use the ""S"" sound at the end of words with ""CH"" or ""chs"". Those who speak European Portuguese are more likely to silence the ""S"" sound, or pounce words in a more muted manner.
The letter ""C"" also has different rules in Portuguese than it does in English. When the letter ""C"" is followed by a vowel such as A, U, or O, it is typically read with a hard ""C"", including words such as ""cranberry"" or ""culture"". However, if ""C"" is followed by an I or an E, it is pronounced similar to the letter ""S"", including words such as central and center. In Portuguese, the cedilla symbol is utilized to showcase that the letter ""C"" is in between two vowels. The cedilla symbol appears as Ç.

Varieties

Portuguese Varieties and Dialects

As with most languages, Portuguese is no stranger to different varieties and dialects.  Portuguese is typically divided into both Northern and Southern dialects. There is Brazilian Portuguese as well as European Portuguese based on the origin of the speaker as well as their own dialect. The two different varieties of Portuguese come from Lisbon and Coimbra.

Northern Portuguese typically includes fewer differentiations with the letters ""B"" and ""V"" than southern Portuguese speakers.

In European Portuguese, there are differences in how vowels are stressed, including before palatal consonants, before palatal front glides, and before nasal consonants. These differences are not always apparent in those who are familiar with Brazilian Portuguese, which is why it is so important to work together with native speakers whenever you require Portuguese translation services.

Those who are from Brazil and speak Brazilian Portuguese are more likely to do so by enunciating words more prominently and speaking with their mouths open and much wider. Those whose native tongue is European Portuguese are more likely to be familiar with English translation rules and are more likely to speak with their mouths more closed and not as open.

Additionally, Galician is another language that is considered extremely close and similar to all dialects of Portuguese. Galician is spoken among a shrinking population in Spain.
