Any questions? Here are our answers, for the perfect Portuguese translation!
As with all other language translations, attention must be paid to localisation, transcreation and the cultural subtleties of the language.
When translating Portuguese texts, the content must not only be conveyed correctly in terms of subject matter and terminology. The final texts must also be adapted to the linguistic, cultural and sometimes legal conventions of the target country (so-called localisation). Even native speakers sometimes do not have the necessary linguistic competence for these specialised translations. That is why it is particularly important to hire a native-speaker translator with reliable expertise. This way you can be sure that your translation is technically and linguistically perfect.
Depending on the needs, a transcreation can also be the right solution. With this form of contextual translation, the translator is given more creative freedom. This can be particularly useful when translating emotional and entertaining advertising and marketing texts.
From our many years of experience, we can clearly identify which language combinations are particularly relevant and in demand for Portuguese translations:
German - Portuguese, English - Portuguese, French - Portuguese, Dutch - Portuguese, Spanish - Portuguese, Polish - Portuguese, Italian - Portuguese and Russian - Portuguese. Here you can find the overview of all our 80 available target languages.
If you need translations from Portuguese, for example a Portuguese birth certificate or a technical text, or into Portuguese, for example a contract or your driving licence, then lingoking is the right place for you. At lingoking you can easily calculate prices for translations online - and of course book them directly! Simply upload the document at the end of the ordering process. We do not need originals.
Depending on the requirements, the different tools, providers and services each have their advantages. However, for professional communication with clients and stakeholders, we recommend not using DeepL exclusively for translation without subsequent proofreading by a native speaker. Although you save considerable costs on the translation, this service does not achieve the translation quality of professional specialist translators.
As a result, the web-based translation app from lingoking is currently probably the best solution for small to large translation jobs in terms of usability, speed and quality. In particular for assignments that do not have specific requirements in terms of niche or brand-specific terminology or technical terms. Personal exchange (offer, feedback, etc.) is not required and only takes place at the request of the customer.
The classic lingoking translation service is recommended if time is not the decisive criterion or if you require an offer for larger order volumes. Individual onboarding through our project management, interface optimisation, service and sustainable good cooperation are our focus here. Complemented by the web app for urgent translation - for one or more people in your department or company, this model is probably the best overall package we can offer you at the moment.
Here are our answers, for the perfect Portuguese interpreter!
Portuguese interpreters are needed on many occasions. Generally speaking, we can distinguish between different forms of interpreting:
A consecutive interpreter does not translate the spoken words into Portuguese until the speaker has finished speaking. Nowadays, an Portuguese consecutive interpreter is mainly used for ceremonial occasions such as weddings.
Simultaneous inerpreters can provide simultaneous interpretation thanks to modern interpreting technology (microphones, interpreting booths). This form of interpreting is particularly common at conferences and meetings. Simultaneous interpreting, however, is very strenuous for the interpreter, which is why there are often several interpreters taking turns.
Whispering interpreters are a special kind of simultaneous interpreters who work without technical aids. The whispering interpreter sits directly next to the listener and whispers the Portuguese interpretation directly into his or her ear.
Telephone interpreters are used for telephone conversations or negotiations scheduled at short notice and are connected to the conversation by telephone. This enables them to remotely interpret into Portuguese consecutively or simultaneously.
Relais interpreters are used for less widely spoken languages. In this form of interpreting, a less common language is first interpreted into Portuguese, which then serves as a template for interpretation into other languages. In this case, the Portuguese interpreter is only a midpoint in the interpreting process.
The recommended form of interpreting varies depending on what the requirements are. While a simultaneous interpreter is needed for larger meetings with many participants, a telephone interpreter can also interpret a short conversation into Portuguese. Different situations require different types of interpreters.
Furthermore, interpreters also differ according to their area of expertise. While conference interpreters ensure smooth communication at trade fairs, meetings and conferences, for example, court interpreters are used in proceedings and trials with Portuguese-speaking witnesses.
With a Portuguese interpreter from lingoking, you are linguistically on the safe side: We provide highly trained interpreters for every language. Each interpreter is obliged to first sign a confidentiality agreement and the interpreters' code of ethics. If necessary, we will be happy to provide a Portuguese sworn interpreter, which is necessary, for example, for weddings, legal disputes or inheritance matters. At lingoking, you benefit from the linguistic skills of a Portuguese interpreter who has been working in his profession for several years.
Special circumstances require special measures. A typical short holiday can be over much faster than you think. What about a hiking holiday or even a pilgrimage? Such undertakings require careful planning, taking into account many risks. Travelling alone in a foreign country without regional language skills can quickly become a nightmare when unforeseeable things happen.
If, for example, you are planning to walk the Camino de Santiago trail - a route known to millions of people at the latest since Hape Kerkeling's book ""Ich bin dann mal weg"" (""I’m Off Then"") - it may be a good idea to walk at least part of the route with a Portuguese interpreter by your side. Especially in small villages, locals rarely speak English. And when you go to remote farmhouses to ask for directions along the way, even the best English usually won’t get you anywhere. It is then reassuring to have someone with you who can assist with this.
And of course, your Portuguese interpreter will also prove to be indispensable when it comes to reading maps, signposts and street signs. Needless to say, having an interpreter on hand can also be very useful during a ""normal"" city tour through Portugal. This makes booking a room in a new guesthouse almost every day and asking for local sightseeing tips much easier than doing so with a shaky voice and a dictionary in hand.
