What are the differences between Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese?
The main difference between Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese is in pronunciation. Brazilian Portuguese has a more open pronunciation, with more emphasis on certain syllables and a more nasal sound. European Portuguese has a more closed pronunciation, with less emphasis on certain syllables and a more relaxed sound. Additionally, Brazilian Portuguese has more loanwords from Indigenous languages, and some words are used differently in the two varieties. Grammar and spelling also differ between the two varieties.
- Pronunciation: Some letters are pronounced differently, such as “s” being pronounced as “sh” in European Portuguese, and more like “s” in Brazilian Portuguese.
- Vocabulary: Some words have different meanings or are used differently in each variation of the language.
- Grammar: There are differences in the way the subjunctive mood is used, and in the use of personal infinitives.
- Intonation: The rhythm and stress patterns of the two dialects can be different, with Brazilian Portuguese often being described as more musical.
- Spelling: There are also differences in the way some words are spelled, with European Portuguese often being more conservative in retaining traditional spellings.

Portuguese translation tips
Although Portuguese is used in several countries, our clients usually order Portuguese translation services which are intended for use in either Brazil or Portugal. Before ordering a Portuguese translation, determine which country the translation is intended for as there are significant differences between Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese. Brazil has by far the most Portuguese speakers in the world (nearly 200 million people), so most of the Portuguese translations we deliver are for Brazil.
If you are translating a medical device IFU (Instructions for Use) for compliance with EU regulations, make sure to order a European Portuguese translation. The same applies to patent translation: if you are filing for patent protection in the EU states, make sure to order the translation in European Portuguese.
