Let’s Talk: Quality Portuguese Translation Services

Business, Language Service Provider (LSP)

If you think Portuguese is only spoken by people living in Portugal, think again. Portuguese is actually the fifth most popular language spoken in the world. It is the main language in Brazil, Cabo Vere, Mozambique, and Guinea-Bissau and the co-official language in Macau and East Timor.

Among our network of experienced linguists, we have translators, interpreters, and project managers specializing in over 100 languages including Portuguese. It’s crucial to find excellent Portuguese translators because like English, Portuguese has many variations and linguistic variations or cultural differences can be a challenge when it comes to document translation

As you work through the process of finding an English to Portuguese translator, make sure to ask the right questions. The following will give you the lay of the land and help you recognize high quality Portuguese translation services.

The foundation of our business is the life sciences and medical industry. Our translators, interpreters, and transcriptionists have worked with some of the world’s largest life sciences organizations. This experience has allowed us to hone our proven quality process driven by industry standards.

Technical and Manufacturing

In the financial and legal services sector, the demand for high quality language services is sky high. That’s why we ensure that we have plenty of coverage for all types of Portuguese legal and financial terminology. This very technical industry requires English to Portuguese translators with a very specific set of skills.

Are you looking for translations of bank transactions, business reports, annual profit statements, trade agreements, or shareholder reports?

We have teams of professional translators who are extensively trained in legal terms and jargon and qualified to provide even the most complex legal translations and interpretations.

Are you in need of accurate legal transcriptions

We offer three types of flexible transcription services:

  • Monolingual: transcribing an audio or video file from oral to written form in the same language (spoken language ‘A’ → written language ‘A’)
  • Interpretive: transcribing an audio or video file from oral to written form in a different language (spoken language ‘A’ → written language ‘B’)
  • Double Column: transcribing an audio or video file from oral to written form in both languages (spoken language ‘A’ → written language ‘A’ and ‘B’)

Are you ready to pitch foreign investors?

The amount of data and information required by investment banks is overwhelming and if you’re pitching investors outside of the U.S. there’s even more to deal with. DTS has designed a unique workflow that gives us the capability to handle asset management translation projects, investment translation projects, and regular financial translation projects quickly and accurately.

Our expert Portuguese translators, interpreters, and transcriptionists have experience working with a wide range of legal documents including patent applications, merger and acquisition contracts, trademark and copyright paperwork, wills and trusts, business documents, leases, and more.

You might be surprised to know that while Portuguese attorneys and other legal professionals are often fluent English speakers, they prefer to read legal and financial documents in their native Portuguese. To learn more about our legal translation process, click on this blog article.
