From global to local
As you probably already know, there isn’t really one single universal Portuguese language. Many Portuguese words and phrases can be singular to a particular area and would be as foreign to an Portuguese speaker from outside the region as words from Mandarin or Ewokese. On the other side, there are some words that may be used in all Portuguese-speaking countries, but which have entirely different meanings depending on which of those countries you’re in.
As such, if you’re planning on expanding your business to one of these Portuguese-speaking countries, it’s important to employ the right language. You want the language to sound as natural as possible to the locals, but you also want to avoid mistakenly offending anyone. Therefore, only qualified and experienced Portuguese translators can deliver the right and appropriate content translating from one language to another.
Portuguese language history
The Portuguese language belongs to the Romance languages of the Indo-European language family. It developed in the Western Iberian Peninsula from Latin spoken by the Roman soldiers and colonists starting in the 3rd century BC. Old Portuguese, also known as Galician-Portuguese, began to diverge from other Romance languages after the fall of the Western Roman Empire and the Germanic invasions, and started appearing in written documents around the 9th century. By the 13th century, Galician-Portuguese had become a mature language with its own literature and began to split into two languages.
However, the debate of whether Galician and Portuguese are nowadays varieties of the same language is still present. Galician, spoken in northwestern Spain, is thus closely related to Portuguese.

Brazilian Portuguese vs. European Portuguese
Just as there are differences between American English and British English, there are differences between Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese (Portuguese spoken in Portugal). Don’t make the mistake of thinking the two countries speak the same Portuguese! In terms of vocabulary, grammar, spelling and pronunciation there are so many differences when it comes to Brazil Portuguese and European Portuguese.
Mastering a language is about mastering the details that make it unique. Many Portuguese speakers don't know about the little differences that separate Brazilian Portuguese from European Portuguese. As shown in the table it can come down to replacing an entire word with another one. These are all factors that should be considered when translating into Portuguese as they can easily be the difference between ‘making it’ and ‘breaking it’.
