Portuguese translation by a certified translator

Professional Portuguese translation quality and the services of certified Portuguese translators come with a price tag. This is because a certified Portuguese translator will translate your texts thoroughly, professionally and make sure the Portuguese translation will reflect the original text. Using the free online Portuguese translation alternatives can be very tempting. However, machine translators or software translators cannot put words into the proper context which may lead to unwanted errors in translation. Our recommendation would be to always employ the services of a professional translator. This way you ensure that any Portuguese translations reflect the hard work you put into the original document. Let your translated documents shine with professionalism and linguistic elegance.

Translation failures

If you speak English and have a basic knowledge of a Latin language such as Spanish, Italian or French, you might think that translating English into Portuguese will be a piece of cake. Unfortunately, there are many false friends in Portuguese that might lead to awkward translations. It is also important to take into account the differences between Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese when translating. If not, you might have funny results such as:
  • “No Brasil” means “in Brazil”, and not “not/no Brazil”. For instance, “moro no Brasil” (I live in Brazil)
  • “Aconselho a tratar a sua constipação” means “I advise you to take care of your cold”, not of your constipation
  • “Vamos assistir ao debate” doesn’t translate as “we will help the debate” but rather “we will attend the debate”
  • “Puxe a porta” means “pull the door”, not “push the door”
  • “I am talking” in Portugal would be “estou a falar”, whereas in Brazil people tend to use the gerund form “estou falando”
The examples above are just some pitfalls out of all the ones you might encounter. To make sure your Portuguese translation is accurate, call a certified translator.
