Translation To and From PortugueseEVS Translations USA offers professional translations from Portuguese into English and from English into Portuguese.
Portuguese is the official language of seven countries and the native tongue of 220 million people worldwide, from Cape Verde to Mozambique. It's also the co-official language in Macau, Equatorial Guinea, and East Timor. However, despite high numbers of speakers across the globe, many people remain unaware of the differences between European and Brazilian Portuguese, let alone African and Galician Portuguese. We at EVS Translations are experts in the nuances of each country and region, and this expertise help us to produce the very best translations, tailored to both the needs of your business and your customer.
What Makes Portuguese Different?
Brazilian Portuguese has developed quite differently from European Portuguese, having been influenced by the various indigenous languages of South America, and perhaps more surprisingly, Africa, due to Brazil's role in the slave trade. For example, the word for pineapple in Portugal is the same as it is in Spanish, 'ananas', whereas in Brazilian Portuguese this would be 'abacaxi', which comes from the extinct Tupi language. Despite recent reforms that attempted to standardize the language, significant differences in spelling remain, with European Portuguese bearing a much closer resemblance to Castilian Spanish.

In Our Words
“We recently worked on a position paper prepared by an association for the air transportation industry that detailed new provisions from the EU Commission aimed at tightening safety regulations in commercial air transportation. These included proposals for aviation regulation and HR restrictions relating to the number of hours worked by pilots and cabin staff. Key aspects for translation were the high level of specialist terminology that included legal, regulatory and aviation specific terms and a tight deadline.”
