Voice over in Brazilian Portuguese – HomePlug Alliance
For this video we provided Brazilian Portuguese translation of time-coded English script which was created by our audio transcription team, and we also recorded, post-produced and integrated the Brazilian Portuguese voice over into the video.
Together with HomePlug Alliance we cast one of our Brazilian Portuguese male voice artists, Fernando-R, and then following the existing English voice over for pace and intonation, we recorded the Brazilian Portuguese voice over to the time constraints of the English video. You can listen to more of Fernando’s demos on our Brazilian Portuguese voice over page.

A short history of the Brazilian Portuguese language
In the early days, the language existed alongside others, including the Amerindian languages of the original inhabitants of Brazil. But by the end of the 18th century, due to increasing numbers of Portuguese immigrants and expansion into the country’s interior, Portuguese had established itself as Brazil’s national language.
During its evolution, Brazilian Portuguese has been influenced by various other languages, most notably the indigenous Amerindian languages as well as the African languages spoken by thousands of slaves brought to the country between the 16th and 19th centuries.
Brazilian Portuguese differs from European Portuguese in terms of spelling, vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. There is less variation between the written versions of the two languages than the spoken ones. The difference between written Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese is similar to the difference between American and British English.
Portuguese is the official language of Brazil. More than 99% of the population speaks Brazilian Portuguese; the rest are either Amerindian communities who speak indigenous languages, or immigrant communities who speak their own native languages.
How many people speak Brazilian Portuguese as their first language?
Around 200 million people speak Brazilian Portuguese as their first language. Brazil is the top Portuguese-speaking country in the world, in terms of numbers of speakers (the next three are Mozambique, Angola and Portugal itself).
Did you know…
- While Brazilian people sometimes have a little trouble understanding Portuguese people, the opposite doesn’t tend to be true – this is largely down to the huge influence of Brazilian soap operas and music.
- Although there are variations in accent throughout Brazil, the proliferation of TV networks based in the southeast of the country (eg in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo) means that the southeast regional accent has become standard in the media.
- Adopted words derived from Amerindian languages are particularly common in place, plant and animal names. Words adopted from African languages are often related to food and music.
Brazil has the sixth largest economy by nominal GDP in the world, and the seventh largest by purchasing power parity. It is the largest economy in Latin America and the second largest in the western hemisphere.
Brazil made a good recovery after the 2008-2009 global financial crisis, but recently growth has slowed dramatically, leading many to speculate that its predicted surge up the economic leader board may have stalled.
Around 70% of Brazilians are employed in the service sector, 19% in industry and 10% in agriculture. Brazil is a member of various economic organisations including G20, WTO, G8+5, Mercosur, Unasul and the Cairns Group.

Fantastic to work with
The team at Matinée are fantastic to work with. They are really communicative, helpful and turned around the work as quickly as possible. I have no complaints at all and we will definitely be getting back in contact when we next need subtitles.

Friendly and efficient service
The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
