About Portuguese

With approximately 220 million native speakers worldwide, Portuguese is a truly global language. Spoken in Portugal, it is also the sole official language of Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and São Tomé and Príncipe and has co-official status in Macau and East Timor, meaning speakers are widely distributed across several continents, including Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe. According to a UNESCO survey, Portuguese is, along with its Spanish cousin, the fastest growing European language and takes its place as the seventh most spoken language in the world after Bengali. It comprises several dialects and sub-dialects, and there are two recognised standards in the world, European Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese.

Brazilian Portuguese is quite different to that spoken in Europe, mostly due to phonetic differences, although they share a standardised spelling. 

Portuguese is a Romance language like French and Portuguese but has many lexical differences which mean it is not mutually intelligible with these. It belongs specifically to the West-Iberian group of Romance languages like Spanish. This link allows it to be partially understandable to Spanish speakers. Like Spanish, it uses 26 letters of the Latin alphabet but includes more diacritics - 6 in total. These are necessary as Portuguese comprises a larger phonetic range than Spanish - something which can cause problems when Spanish & Portuguese speakers try to communicate. 

Portugal and Brazil have their own business etiquette. See our Doing Business in Portugal and our Doing Business in Brazil pages to find out more.


What form/s of interpretation do TJC Global's Portuguese interpreters provide?

Image and video hosting by TinyPicSimultaneous interpreting requires lots of skill and experience and can be very tiring for an interpreter, which is why it is common for two interpreters to work in partnership.  They listen via a headset to the speaker and interpret what is being said into a microphone for the relevant audience members taking it in turns every 15/20 minutes. 

Simultaneous interpretation like this is commonly required at conferences that involve several different languages and a large number of participants.

Image and video hosting by TinyPicConsecutive interpreting is the most common type of interpreting. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial discussions, legal, technical discussions, medical or court hearings or on site inspections. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and delivers the meaning in the target language afterwards. If a speech is delivered, the interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver a translation relatively quickly. Consecutive interpreting may also be used at conferences for panel discussions, Q&A sessions or private discussions between parties - at a stall or elsewhere. 

 

Image and video hosting by TinyPicFacilitating interpreting is used when a client has limited English / source language skills but requires technical or in depth terminology to be clarified in their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings.

The facilitating interpreter is there primarily to ensure communication is effective and relieve the client from the fatigue of speaking in a foreign tongue. 

 

Image and video hosting by TinyPicTelephone interpreting allows parties of different nationalities, who are not able to meet in person, to communication via telephone or video conferencing.

The interpreter bridges the gap. Sometimes an interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also located somewhere apart from both parties.
