Before choosing Amerigo Global, or any other company, here are a few things that you should know:
Portuguese Translation: Expectations
Every language has a different word economy. By that we mean that it takes a different number of words to express the same concept from language to language. For this reason, particular paragraphs in your document may be shorter or longer when translated into Portuguese. Thus, your Portuguese document translation may appear slightly different from your source document. If your document includes images or graphics, they may need to be adjusted to accommodate the word economy of the translated document. We strive to be as faithful to the source document’s layout as we can and will keep you informed of any major changes to the layout as they occur.
European vs. Brazilian Portuguese
While Portuguese is spoken in African countries such as Angola and Asian countries such as the newly formed East Timor, the two main forms of spoken Portuguese are Brazilian and European. Don’t know which Portuguese you need? There are many grammatical and stylistic differences between the two forms. Our experienced project managers can help you decide which form you need to utilize in your Portuguese document translation.
