But, before we get into the aspects of Portuguese language services, let's take a brief look into the origins and expansion of Portuguese language so that we can understand the complexities and the variants of this language.
A BYTE OF HISTORY
Portuguese, Português or, in its full form, Língua Portuguesa is a Western Romance language that was born in the Iberian Peninsula of Europe. It is the one and only offical language of Portugal, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Angola and São Tomé and Príncipe. It likewise has co-official language status in East Timor, Equatorial Guinea and Macau. A Portuguese-speaking individual or country is known as "Lusophone" (Lusófono). During the colonial expansion times, the social presence of Portuguese and Portuguese creole speakers were additionally discovered far and wide like e.g., Cape Verdean Creole, and Papiamento the most broadly used of these.
Just 5% of Portuguese speakers live in Portugal
Obviously, with crowded nations, for example, Brazil and Mozambique having it as their official language, most of Portuguese speakers are not from Portugal. However, the assessed extents of Portuguese speakers outside of Portugal are very surprising—only one-20th of the world's Lusophones really live in the language's nation of origin.
It’s the fastest-growing European language in the world behind English
Due to the humungous numbers of Portuguese speakers across the globe (it is the sixth most spoken language on the planet) and its distribution across South America, Europe, Africa and Asia, Portuguese is growing fast and has the potential to be an “international communication language,” according to UNESCO.
It's the official language of nine nations
It is a typical misinterpretation that Portuguese is just spoken in Portugal and Brazil. Truth be told, it is the official language in nine distinct nations: Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Guinea-Bissau, Timor-Leste, Equatorial Guinea, Cape Verde, and São Tomé and Principe. Moreover, Portuguese is the official language of the Chinese self-ruling region of Macau.
It's majorly influenced by Arabic
As various conquerors from North Africa and the Middle East vanquished Portugal and Spain during the eighth century, a variant of Arabic was the official language of the Iberian Peninsula until the Reconquista of the thirteenth century. The consequence was, the Portuguese language went came under a hefty impact from Arabic, and numerous expressions of Arabic birthplace stay in regular speech, including azeitona (olive), and garrafa (bottle).
Every verb tense has six unique endings
Ostensibly the greatest hindrance for English speakers who are attempting to translate Portuguese is that every verb tense has six unique formations for an assortment of pronouns. That can be a very confusing task. So, make sure that you give a clear context of your content for the writer to understand.
European and Brazilian Portuguese are very distinct
While frequently contrasted with the distinction among American and British English, which are varieties of a similar language yet fundamentally the same as, Portuguese from Portugal and Portuguese from Brazil are significantly more removed. The principle distinction comes in the utilization of the second-person pronoun. In Portugal, ‘tu’ and ‘vós’ are generally utilized, while these are rarely heard in Brazil, which favours the pronouns ‘você’ and ‘vocês’.
Despite the fact that ‘você’ is viewed as contemporary and less formal, alongside the remainder of Brazilian Portuguese, the inverse is in actuality valid. ‘Você’ is a contracted adaptation of the formal respectful welcome ‘vossa mercê’ ("your kindness"), and a significant number of the contrasts between the two renditions identify with Brazilian Portuguese's tendency to utilize terms from eighteenth and nineteenth century Portuguese.
It just had 23 letters until 2009
As of not long ago, the letters "K," "W," and "Y" were not part of the Portuguese language. In words, for example, ‘kilogram’, Portuguese would trade out the K for ‘qu-,’ quilograma, while ‘W’ and ‘Y’ sounds were just ever found in unfamiliar formal people, places or things. In 2009, Portuguese-speaking nations around the globe got together to sign another "Orthographic Agreement," which normalized spelling structures across various variants of Portuguese and presented the letters ‘K,’ ‘W,’ and ‘Y.’
Portuguese originates from Galicia in Northwest Spain
The foundations of the Portuguese language are situated in the self-ruling network of Galicia, in the north of Portugal and the northwest of Spain. Their language, Galician, was a blend of nearby tongues and regular Latin, and around the fourteenth century, Portuguese developed as a relative language. Indeed, even today, speakers of Portuguese and Galician experience no difficulty understanding each other.
