About the Portuguese language
Portuguese is the official language of Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and São Tomé and Príncipe. It also has co-official status in Macau in East Asia, East Timor in Southeast Asia and in Equatorial Guinea in Central Africa and you can find Portuguese speakers as far afield as Goa, Daman and Diu in India and in Malacca in Malaysia as well as in Australia, USA, Japan, Canada and many more!
There are approximately 250 million native speakers worldwide, making Portuguese the 6th most widely spoken language in the world and one of the official languages of the European Union. It’s a Latin-based language with similarities to Spanish and French.
Global Importance of Portuguese
Portugal is a founding member of NATO and a member of numerous international organisations including the United Nations. Portuguese speaking businesses include well-known names such as Petrobras, WEG Industries and TAP Air Portugal.
Portugal and in particular Brazil are markets which are growing and looking to trade – the increase in requests for professional Portuguese translations mirrors our clients’ increased business with Portuguese speaking companies.
Portuguese is certainly an important language and one that plays a significant role in the international business community, particularly in Brazil which is an upcoming economic superpower.
What does Portuguese translation involve?
At MTT, we provide professional translation services to and from European and Brazilian Portuguese, using only highly qualified native speakers who are often experts in their chosen field – be that commercial contracts, motors and drives or marketing materials. Our translators hold a degree level qualification as a minimum and are often members of professional translation bodies. They will translate your document providing a text which is accurate, flows naturally in the target language and conveys your important messages clearly. Working at a speed of around 2000 words a day, a professional translator is a highly skilled individual, with a deep understanding of two cultures to effectively bridge the gap between languages.
There are risks in using a non-native speaker or an underqualified translator or student. Poorly translated content will look unprofessional and may damage your reputation. It could even pose a safety risk. We carefully match our specialist Portuguese translators to your requirements for every project to ensure your translator understands your text, any technical aspects and the message you are giving.
If your business is looking to expand into Portugal or Brazil, or if you wish to make the most of existing contacts in these locations, having professionally translated and accurate Portuguese documents, manuals and press releases is important. MTT is here to help you every step of the way with reliable, creative and cost-effective solutions to your translation and interpreting needs.
Simply email us your document on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will ensure that it is matched to the right translator based on their qualifications, experience and availability. Quotations are always provided free of charge and are usually ready within a couple of hours.
