How to evaluate a translation service
Even if you speak a language, it doesn’t mean you’re able to provide a quality translation. Today’s market is filled with agencies and individuals claiming they can guarantee translation services in several languages, Portuguese included. But not everyone is qualified to do so. What’s more, Portuguese is such a unique language that sometimes even native speakers of the dialects from different countries have a hard time understanding each other. At Topcontent, we can provide quality translations in more than one language variant, including both European and Brazilian Portuguese, embracing the full scope of the language.

No matter what niche your business fits into, we can guarantee that our team of professional translators will work towards providing a top-quality and natural translation of your content.

Questions you should ask a translation service
We understand that having your website or blog translated is a business decision that needs to be taken carefully. We also understand that in the process, many questions may arise, so we’ve made a shortlist of some of the most frequently asked questions. You should only start to work with a translation agency once you’re sure that all of them have been answered. Reach out to us and we will happily answer these and any other question or query that you might have.
- Do you have English-Portuguese translations available?
- Can you translate in the language variant I’m looking for?

Why prices for the same language pair can differ between different translation services
Agencies have different ways of evaluating their services. Some may charge you per word, others may charge you depending on the complexity of the work, while others will do it based on the language-pair you’re looking for. No matter which case applies, it’s always good to check and compare prices before deciding on the best translation service. Languages are obviously quite different from each other, each having its own peculiarities and linguistic traits. Portuguese, for example, is very distinct from English, beginning with its roots: Portuguese has a Romance origin, while English’s roots are Germanic. The Portuguese alphabet also lacks some letters present in the English one, like K, W and Y, and adds others with diacritic marks like Ç, Õ and Ê. Portuguese text is also around 30% longer than its English counterpart, and this fact will also have an impact on the translation.
