Website and Software Translation Services: English to Portuguese
Did you know that Portuguese is the 6th (some say 5th) most spoken language in the world?
According to a report by NewMediaTrendWatch, there were 79+million users in Brazil alone (representing 39.0% of the population) in December 2011. Recent study revealed (site language in Portuguese) this number to go as high as 94+million in December of 2012. And we are talking about Brazil alone. If you consider that there are countries (e.g. Portugal, Mozambique, Angola, etc.) that equally speaks Portuguese, then you are looking at numbers that can easily surpass the 120+milion mark.
Internet usage in Brazil is growing at a rapid pace. eMarketer expects the number of internet users in the largest country in Latin America to reach
86.4 million in 2012(revised), for a total penetration of 42%. As the web and social media become part of the everyday routine of many consumers in Brazil, they have begun to integrate their digital activities with other media as well.
According to February data from IBOPE Nielsen Online, internet users in metropolitan areas of Brazil were joining the global trend of simultaneously using the internet while watching TV. Almost six in 10 internet users said that they accessed the internet while watching TV every day, while less than a tenth reported using the internet once a week or less while watching TV. (eMarketer, August 2012)
Internet adoption will reach 42.0% in Brazil in 2012, according to eMarketer. The level is expected to reach 48.0% by 2016.
