Translations from English into Portuguese

Fasttranslator Translation Services

We are happy to advise you individually and without any obligations.

Translations from English into Portuguese are essential for global companies. The Portuguese language can be difficult, however, so only a native speaker who has spoken the language since childhood can overcome its complexities.

Such a native translator knows all the intricacies of the language and translates accordingly so that your text is 100% understandable.

Being a native speaker alone is not sufficient, though, so every one of our 4,200 translators has at least one area of specialization in a particular field or industry.

The Portuguese Language

Portuguese is a Romance language from the Indo-European family. It belongs to the group of the Ibero-Romance languages along with Catalan, Spanish, and the other languages of the Iberian Peninsula. With over 215 million native speakers, Portuguese is now also one of the world's major languages.

Portuguese spread mainly in the 15th and 16th centuries and is still the official language of several independent states. Over 20 creole languages have evolved from Portuguese as well. Due to massive migration from Portugal to North America and Western Europe, Portuguese has become an important minority language in many parts of the world.

Challenges of Translation into Portuguese

Portuguese speakers from different parts of the world understand each other's spoken language without any problem. This makes oral communication between speakers from different Portuguese-speaking countries easier. There are, however, differences in written communication between the different geographic areas.

For example, European/African Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese differ substantially in terminology and syntax. Therefore, the different language variants should be taken into consideration when texts are translated for different Portuguese-speaking countries.

In African countries, European Portuguese is preferred in written communication. Portuguese is the official language in Angola and the most widely spoken language in Mozambique. Based on UNESCO studies, the language is expected to spread even further on the African continent.

Translators from English to Portuguese must be very familiar with the differences in the financial, technical, and legal terminology between European and Brazilian Portuguese. When selecting a translator for your project, we always take into consideration both the professional area and the language variant. This is how we ensure that every one of our translations is of high quality.

We also, of course, translate from Brazilian Portuguese into English. We can even provide certified and notarized translations of government documents (birth certificates, licenses, etc.) for the USCIS and other official entities.
