Portuguese Translation and Interpreting
One of the things that makes Portuguese so interesting is that it is the national language of Brazil (in South America), Portugal, (which shares Spain’s western border), as well as the African countries of Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, and São Tomé and Príncipe. It is even an official language in Macau!
Experienced Portuguese translators make all the difference
One of the things that makes Portuguese so interesting is that it is the national language of Brazil (in South America), Portugal, (which shares Spain’s western border), as well as the African countries of Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, and São Tomé and Príncipe. This broad geographic spread leads to many variations in dialects, phrasing, and word preferences.
Thus, it is important that you select a translation and interpretation firm that understands these variants so your translated documents can be read fluidly and sensibly, without any awkward or incorrect phrasing. Chang-Castillo and Associates has worked in the world of professional Portuguese translation for more than a decade. We can provide a wide range of professionally translated documents to you and your clients. These include:
- Government documents
- Sales materials and brochures
- Presentation materials
- Speeches and transcripts
- Technical manuals
- Corporate materials and more
Please give us a call at (877) 708-0005, or contact us directly online, to discuss how our expert linguists can help your business shine in the Portuguese-speaking market.
Professional translation of your business materials done right
All of our translation projects are conducted using a three-phase quality assurance process. During the first phase, you will communicate with your project manager, who serves as both the head of the translation team as well as your personal liaison so communication is seamless and your queries are answered in a timely fashion.
Second, no fewer than three separate linguists will work together on the translated materials to make sure that the original essence of your written words are converted into a rhythm and order that makes sense in the target language. The key is to provide a completely accurate translation, that not only preserves your brand’s message and energy but is also culturally sensitive to the readers – your future customers and clients.
The results will be a linguistically perfect document which we can return to you in any format you request. We are also happy to assist in organizing translated materials and documents for multilingual meetings and presentations.
Hire interpreters who meet Portuguese-speaking clients’ needs
It is important that your clients hear exactly what you express, and only a native-level interpreter, who is familiar with the region and dialect of the target audience, can make sure that is the case. Chang-Castillo and Associates insists on being meticulous when it comes to placing the right interpreter with the right client. We only work with interpreters backed by serious credentials and experience. This ranges from graduate degrees in conference interpretation from recognized universities, memberships and certifications from the most reputable, worldwide interpretation associations and at least five years of professional conference interpretation experience.
There are two main types of interpretation modes we can provide: ·
- Simultaneous interpretation. This is the type of interpreting you see on TV if you have ever watched UN meetings or other global summits in action. For this type of interpreting, attendees wear headphones that connect them to simultaneous interpreters who sit in soundproof booths and translate instantaneously and in real time. Simultaneous interpretation is most commonly used for large-scale events, meetings and conferences. ·
- Consecutive interpretation. This type of interpretation requires a bit more patience because the dialogue goes back and forth between you, the interpreter, the client and the interpreter and back to you again. It takes a little longer but makes more sense when conducting smaller, more intimate conversations, like private meetings, a small dinner engagement or business negotiations.
CCA can arrange for interpreters to conduct either simultaneous or consecutive interpretation, depending on your needs. We are available to work anywhere on the planet, whether you are hosting clients on your own turf or travelling to another country to conduct your business there. We can also provide equipment and technician packages to facilitate the interpretation process as needed.
If you don’t have the time or budget to travel or fund your clients’ visit, it’s not a problem. As long as you have a telephone, our teleconferencing services are also a professional solution for your phone conferences or corporate presentations.
Contact CCA today to discuss your needs and we will make sure that every word spoken is translated with impeccable attention to meaning, nuance and culture. Call us at +1 (877) 708-0005.
Don’t let technical glitches get in the way of your message
We consider ourselves the platinum standard for Portuguese translation and interpretation. This requires a comprehensive approach that recognizes the strongest chain in the world can be broken by a single weak link. What good is high-quality interpretation if you do not have the top-notch equipment required to do the job?
CCA offers state-of-the art, technical equipment to facilitate your event, whether you need headphones and microphone equipment, sound-proof booths, infrared transmitters or more. In addition to providing you with a comprehensive rental equipment package, we will send along a technician to make sure the equipment functions correctly from start to finish.

Are your digital translations up to par?
Did you know Brazil has Latin America’s largest mobile Internet market? That is the word according to emarketer.com’s most recent data. If you want your company to be found, or you want Portuguese colleagues and clients to be able to learn about you online, it is critical that your company’s websites and social media sites are optimized and localized. Google Translate is a powerful tool, but it simply cannot humanize website, blogs and social media content with the the uniquely personalized nuances required to tap into your target market’s pain points, interests and needs.
With professional website localization, your digital content will do what it was created for in the first place – to reach a greater audience and your products and services. All of that hard work you are doing to churn out accurate translations and nuanced interpretations will go to waste if prospective customers and clients cannot understand what they read on your website, or if the translations are awkward or vary from your brand’s reputation.
Even worse, those same customers and clients will be turned off if the translations are computerized- rather than personalized. CCA’s localization team ensures every word of your content resonates with the target language market, and we never, ever use automated translation software. In addition to your words, we make sure your images and graphics are equally translated, so you will not have to worry about culturally-insensitive faux pas.
Contact Chang-Castillo and Associates today, and let’s brainstorm the smartest way to translate your business success in the Portuguese-speaking market. We can provide a la carte or packaged services so you receive platinum-standard language solutions at a price that makes sense for your business. Our team looks forward to growing your business with you.
