Portuguese Interpreting Services Agency

A word correctly pronounced. A thought expressed. A speech translated that carries the meaning intended by the speaker. We take communication for granted. Until we’re faced with someone who speaks a language we don’t. When that happens, you need a brilliant interpreter on board. One with the right qualifications and at least 5 years’ experience, who can translate in both directions right away. Then, everything becomes clear and all things are possible. At Absolute Translations, we don’t just provide Portuguese interpreting services. We carefully pick the perfect Portuguese interpreter for each event. And we craft bespoke packages for our clients that do more than tick boxes. They’re solutions to problems. We build bridges. Start conversations. Connect people who don’t speak a word of each other’s language. And we offer over 200 language combinations. Tell us what you need and when. Whether it’s weeks or months in advance, same day or next day, we can help. Ask for support at any event or occasion. In any location worldwide.

Portuguese is the third most spoken language in the West. There are 260 million Portuguese speakers on the planet. It’s the seventh most widely spoken language in the world. The British Council highlighted it as one of the most important languages for the future. But still only 20 UK universities offer Portuguese courses. So good Portuguese interpreting services are hard to find. The search stops here.

Our interpreters are qualified experts. With Portuguese as their first language.

Like any language, Portuguese has it’s own unique complexities. It’s pronounced one way in Brazil and another in Portugal for starters. And some words carry completely different meanings in the two countries. Some Portuguese phrases can’t be directly translated into English. So you need an expert Portuguese interpreter who can render what’s being said without losing the original meaning. Our interpreters are native Portuguese speakers with a deep understanding of the language. And the culture and customs of Portugal. They know about the importance of family, loyalty, religion, rank and hierarchy. And they’re aware of the strict rules for business etiquette. They can communicate with people at all levels and in any situation.

One comprehensive quote. No surprise charges

Extra charges can come as a shock. Especially when you’ve already had a quote and paid it. We don’t do that. When we send you a quote, the total figure includes everything. The cost of Portuguese interpreting services, along with travel time and expenses. We’re totally transparent when it comes to costs. That’s what makes us unique.

Court-Approved Interpreters/Consecutive Interpreters

Best for events like hearings, trials, solicitor meetings, prison visits, and small conferences. Situations when people speak for up to 5 minutes at a time. Such as question and answer scenarios. The interpreter listens to what’s being said, processes it and then paraphrases in the client’s target language. The interpreter needs in-depth knowledge of both languages and cultures to do it.

Conference and Simultaneous Interpreting

Great for summits, annual meetings and forums as well as conferences, simultaneous interpreting is fast and requires total focus. A lead interpreter in a headset sits in a soundproof booth and renders what the speaker is saying on the spot. The interpreter is supported by at least one colleague. Both need to have certain qualifications and training. The team works solidly for 20 minutes and then takes a short break. Delegates are given headsets with many different language channels to choose from, so everyone can understand what’s being said.  We can provide interpreters and all the equipment you need.

Telephone Interpreting

Need to have a three-way conversation such as a conference call? When you need to speak urgently in different languages, we set up telephone interpreting. The client and the third party communicate through the interpreter, who translates back and forth.
