If you're considering having your English content translated into Portuguese but not sure you need such translation, consider these facts listed at Babbel Magazine:
Portuguese is spoken in eight countries other than Brazil and Portugal. These comprise six African countries — Angola, Cape Verde, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, and São Tomé and Príncipe — as well as two Asian countries, East Timor and Macau.
About 260 million people worldwide speak Portuguese, with about 82% to 85% of those being native speakers.
Portuguese is not as similar to Spanish as you may have been led to believe. Although both are Romance languages, and fluency in one language can help you learn the other, Spanish and Portuguese speakers can't easily understand one another.
Knowing all of this, you'll see why Portuguese translation services are a must if you want to do business on a worldwide scale.
So, you see that many people speak Portuguese. But can a Portuguese translation service benefit you or your business? It can if you're involved in one of the following industries in Brazil:
Machinery and equipment
Oil and gas
Iron and steel
You may work with these major industries in Portugal:
Clothing and textiles
Certainly, there are many more reasons than these to seek out the services of a Portuguese translator. Materials related to travel, hospitality, government, food, and many more fields need professional translation into Portuguese and many other languages.
Moreover, if you're working in a highly specialized field, you may need legal translation, medical translation, or technical translation. Finding a translator who has skills beyond linguistic skills leads to the best English to Portuguese translation and the best Portuguese to English translation.
Hiring a freelance translator can be a gamble. Although many are skilled, some may present themselves as being more skilled than they really are.And be skeptical of any translator who claims to be able to translate back and forth between two languages. Ethically, a translator only translates into their language of fluency. Truly bilingual translators are rare but will happily back up their claims with verification of their skills.
