Translations to fit the Portuguese culture

In Portugal, business is usually based on personal trust as opposed to legally binding contracts, this is because of the slow justice system. The Portuguese place little emphasis on proper planning and are relaxed with meeting deadlines. Because of this, they are adept at handling a last-minute crisis and meetings in general can be very confusing. Agendas are usually not followed.

In terms of getting your document ready for translation, this may mean keeping your meeting notes to headline only, as it allows for a broader discussion and accommodating the Portuguese approach. Furthermore, the Portuguese consider it offensive to write in red ink.

At Waterstone, we have experience with cultures from all over the world. One of the added values we bring to the table is the ability to put practical business culture to the attention of our clients. Our consultative approach aims to provide you with a service that is more than just translation.

It is important to note that we would never censor any information from your translated documents without your permission.
