Portuguese translation services
On-time delivery guaranteed, with no surcharges ever
An eye for detail
Portuguese is the native language of more than 210 million people, which makes it the second most commonly spoken new Latin language after Spanish. There are two main variants of Portuguese – European and Brazilian. The differences between the two are mainly apparent in pronunciation and vocabulary, although there are also differences in sentence structure too. With the help of our native translators, we are up to speed on the slight nuances and constant changes. In order to avoid making mistakes, even when we translate the most complex texts, three experts work on each project: a translator, an editor and a proofreader. All of them work as a full-time translator with at least 5 years’ experience in translation, are native speakers of Portuguese and hold a degree in translation.
Translating specialist documents from Portuguese or to Portuguese
We mainly offer translations from English into Portuguese, but we are also comfortable when the source language is another European language, while we naturally translate out of Portuguese too. We undertake the translation of countless types of documents, including clinical trial documentation, technical manuals and licence agreements.
We guarantee the very highest quality for all translations we undertake. We expect the translators at Albion Languages to be almost as experienced in the topic of the translation as the author of the document. In the case of technical, scientific and medical translations, for example, the author and the target audience often have a degree in medicine or a PhD – just like our translators.
