We can handle translation projects of all sizes, and guarantee the highest quality work at competitive prices. We use a 3-step quality assurance process to ensure that your documents are translated flawlessly. We only employ translators who are highly trained native speakers of the language into which they are translating. This is particularly critical when you consider all of the variations in verb tenses and gender assignment that are easily overlooked or missed completely by an untrained person. We pride ourselves on presenting you with a translation that reads as if it were originally written in the target language.
Like Spanish and Italian, Portuguese is a Romance language originating from the Indo-European language family. In fact, it is closely related to Spanish.
Portuguese is the official language of Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and São Tomé, and Príncipe. Portuguese shares co-official status (along with the native languages) in Macau in East Asia, East Timor in South East Asia, and in Equatorial Guinea in Central Africa. Speakers of Portuguese are also found in Goa, Daman, and Diu in India, Sri Lanka, and Malaysia. Portugal and Brazil have the largest native-speaking Portuguese populations in the world, and the Portuguese spoken in each of those two countries can vary even more than the English of America and Great Britain.
With nearly 240 million speakers worldwide, Portuguese is the eighth-most spoken language in the world, the third-most spoken language in the western hemisphere, and the most spoken language in the southern hemisphere.
Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes once referred to Portuguese as "the sweet language" and Brazilian writer Olavo Bilac lyrically portrayed it as “a última flor do Lácio, inculta e bela” (“the last flower of Latium , wild and beautiful”).
