Benefits of Portuguese translation

Connect with Portuguese-speaking customers

Professional Portuguese translation

Communicate better with potential customers by offering information in their native language.

Several studies have shown that customers feel more confident when purchasing products that are marketed in their own language. According to CSA Research’s “Can’t Read, Won’t Buy” study, 65% of respondents prefer content in their native language, and 40% won’t consider purchasing in other languages.

Nevertheless, it is not only a matter of adapting content to make it more attractive to potential Portuguese-speaking buyers, but also of complying with the legislation of certain target countries which require certain products to be marketed in Portuguese or in the language of that market.

Thanks to Portuguese translation your company can achieve:

Extend the global nature of your business and reach a wider audience.

Expand into new markets and increase international sales. 

Facilitate communication and increase customer and supplier confidence.

Save time, save money and avoid errors in communication management.

Where is Portuguese spoken?

Portuguese, with origins in the Iberian Peninsula, has spread widely throughout the world, and is the official language of Portugal, Brazil and several nations in Africa and Asia. This global expansion has fostered the emergence of numerous variants and dialects. For example, European and Brazilian Portuguese differ markedly in pronunciation, vocabulary and grammatical usage, reflecting the adaptation of the language to different environments and contributing to a rich tapestry of linguistic expressions across the globe.

Localization and adaptation of Portuguese variants

We adapt your content to the culture and variants of the language

Translations adapted to the different regions where Portuguese is spoken

Because Portuguese is widely spoken in very distant regions of the world, multiple variants and dialects have formed. Some of these variants correspond more to natural geographic areas than to the territorial division of states. 

The professional translators on the iDISC team are native speakers of the Portuguese variants of each target region or country and know how to adapt translations so that they reach specific audiences more directly, which, in the case of marketing content, multiplies their effectiveness.  

Of course, a more neutral Portuguese can also be used, which is more suitable for the translation of more technical documentation. 

iDISC offers Portuguese localization of the linguistic and dialectal variants of Portugal and Brazil.

Frequently asked questions about Portuguese translations

What kind of documents can we translate into Portuguese?

We can translate any file type or format. We extract the content, translate it and return the translated document respecting the formatting. We use tools that show the approved updates in the original text in order to apply them faithfully in the translated versions. All this without the need for a designer, editor or programmer.

How do I request a translation into Portuguese?

It’s very simple! All you have to do is fill out this form, attach the document you wish to translate and indicate the language and delivery date. We will contact you as soon as possible and start the translation process so that you can receive your translations without delay.

How is the price of a Portuguese translation calculated?

The translation rate for a document is calculated based on the number of words to be translated. Depending on the project, there are several factors that can influence the final price, such as language combination, content type, source format and delivery time, among others. Similarly, repeated phrases or words can reduce the cost of translation thanks to the use of technological tools.

How long does a Portuguese translation take?

The usual waiting time to receive a simple translation is between 2 and 3 working days. The turnaround time depends mainly on the volume of words, but also on the degree of specialization of the vocabulary. To give you a rough idea, a translator usually translates between 2000 and 2500 words per day on average. Subsequently, this work must be reviewed by another translator, who may process around double or triple the number of words per day in proofreading tasks.

What guarantees are in place to ensure translation quality and confidentiality?

At iDISC, we comply with the quality standards ISO 9001, ISO 17100 and ISO 18587, which establish requirements for professional competence and processes in translation services to ensure that translations are fit for their purpose.

In addition, with ISO 27001-accredited processes and in compliance with the GDPR, we ensure the confidentiality of your translations and protect all your information with the latest cybersecurity tools, using secure systems for the storage, access to and transmission of documents.
