Language Facts

Portuguese is a Romance language that originated in what is now Galicia and northern Portugal. It is derived from the Latin spoken by the romanized Pre-Roman peoples of the Iberian Peninsula (namely the Gallaeci, the Lusitanians, the Celtici and the Conii) around 2000 years ago. It spread worldwide in the 15th and 16th centuries as Portugal established a colonial and commercial empire (1415 - 1999), which spanned from Brazil in the Americas to Goa and other parts of India and Macau in China. It was used as the exclusive lingua franca on the island of Sri Lanka for almost 350 years. During that time, many Creole languages based on Portuguese also appeared around the world, especially in Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean.

The original inhabitants of Angola are thought to have been Khoisan speakers. Large numbers of Bantu speakers migrated to the region and became the dominant group. Angola derives its name from the Bantu kingdom of Ndongo, whose name for its king is NGOLA.

While according the Constitutions of both Portugal and Brazil the Portuguese language is one and the same, it has split into two major variants, namely European and Brazilian. Apart from regional differences, the European variant is the one used in Portugal and all of its former colonies with the single exception of Brazil, which has its own variant. Though any translator should be able to translate from either variant, sometimes they might have some difficulty translating from the one different from their own into a different language. On the other hand, for professional translation, Brazilian Portuguese, European Portuguese, Portuguese in Angola and Mozambique should be treated as completely separate languages to translate into, due to the different way speakers express their ideas in each one. This difference, on top of diverse terminology, tends to get sharper in technical material. Though spelling has been unified via an agreement covering all Portuguese-speaking countries, pronunciation differs sharply between Brazil and Portugal, often to the extent of untrained speakers having a hard time to understand the other variant.

Writing

Portuguese uses the Latin alphabet.
