European Portuguese or Brazilian Portuguese?

Portuguese is spoken around the world. Although one language, there are differences from country to country, meaning it is important to translate into the correct variety. These distinctions can be seen not only in pronunciation but also in grammar, vocabulary, spelling and usage.

The main divide lies between European (or Iberian) Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese. There can also be local variations in African Portuguese speaking countries, although these tend to be closer to European Portuguese than Brazilian. Whether you need to target one or more of these geographic areas, WorldAccent will provide you with a full range of options – ensuring your Portuguese translation has the right feel for your audience.

Two Portuguese typesetting points of interest:

  • Portuguese uses five diacritics: acute accent, grave accent, circumflex accent, tilde, and cedilla). Brazilian Portuguese also uses a diaeresis mark.
  • Brazilian poet Olavo Bilac described Portuguese as “a última flor do Lácio, inculta e bela” (“the last flower of Latium, wild and beautiful”).
