The Brazilian economy is recognised as one of the world’s five major major emerging economies, denoted by the acronym BRICS. Portugal offers economic opportunities of its own. Since the 1990s, Portugal has turned its focus to exports, private investment and the development of the high-tech sector.

Do I need a Translator?

Because both Spanish and Portuguese are spoken on the Iberian Peninsula, many erroneously believe that the language is just a dialect of Spanish. Despite sharing similarities this couldn’t be further from the truth. So if you are looking to translate written text or speech into Portuguese, a knowledge of Spanish is not sufficient. You will need a Portuguese linguist.
