Portuguese translation tips
European vs. Brazilian Portuguese

Similar to the relationship between European French and Canadian French, there are many factors that differentiate the Portuguese spoken in Portugal from the Portuguese spoken in Brazil. While both varieties share much of their vocabulary, there are key differences in intonation, pronunciation, grammar rules and vocabulary.

Translation text expansion

When translating from English into Portuguese, translations usually come back 30% lengthier than the original text. This may cause some problems, from increasing the number of document pages to overstretching navigation menus or calls to action. It’s necessary to keep in mind that translated text will appear longer than English equivalents when planning your website design and layout.
