Translation Services: English-Portuguese and Portuguese-English

1. Portuguese legal document translation.

Translation of Portuguese legal documents requires a detailed knowledge of the terminology exclusive to the Portuguese Justice and Legal Systems, and a precise and accurate translation. Our qualified Portuguese translators guarantee all of this, and will translate your legal documents with all due care, confidentiality and attention to detail. We will ensure your document retains the integrity and sense of the original by having a Portuguese legal advisor or, at your request, a solicitor proofread the entire document.

2. Portuguese technical document translation.

Our translators have become adept in the translation of a multitude of technical document types including scientific texts, technical hand-books and repair manuals, and catalogues for raw materials or equipment. We can maintain the full formatting of your technical document, including positions of included figures such as photographs, formulae and diagrams and translation of accompanying captions.

It is common for technical documents to include a vocabulary specific to the subject matter and beyond the range of even the most experienced of translators. If this is the case, it is helpful to us if you can provide us with a glossary of any specific abbreviations, acronyms, terminology or decoding requirements so that we can provide you with the most accurate and appropriate translation possible.

3. Portuguese economic document translation.

We are highly experienced in the translation of Portuguese economic and financial documents including bank guarantees, audit committee reports, loan contracts and agreements. Our translators are well-versed in the terminology specific to the Portuguese financial and economic sectors, including the accounting standards and insurance services. We can also translate your income statements, balance sheets, annual reports and agreement and investment memoranda.

4. Translation of Portuguese texts.

In the global community in which we live, you may need to translate specialist documents such as literary texts, presentations and website texts which must convey the professionalism, high quality of literary style and the individuality of the original. Other texts for which this is a necessity include marketing and promotional materials, books and special or personal texts.

If on the contrary, the documents are to reach only a select audience for whom the content of the documents, and not the literary style is of primary importance, then we recommend you submit your documents for a common translation. Such documents include diplomas, intra-corporate contracts and other documents. This will ensure you get the best value for your money. For a list of our competitive prices, please click here.

5. Translation of personal Portuguese documents.

Personal documents include passports, certificates and personal letters. Many of these documents will require notarization for use abroad; for more information on our range of document certification and notarization services, please click here.
