Portuguese voice-over for Trimble MEP
Trimble MEP is a company that applies technology to make offsite, field and mobile work more productive. They are best known for their GPS systems but offer a wide range of positioning technologies.Trimble focuses on different divisions within each client company they collaborate with. This video illustrates their work with MEP (Mechanical Electrical Plumbing). As they operate in over 140 countries, they decided to localise the video into a range of languages including Portuguese.
They required a male Portuguese voice actor with a strong, confident and honest voice. Leonardo was the perfect match and brought the script to life with his believable tone.

A short history of the Portuguese language
After the collapse of the Roman Empire, the region was conquered by Germanic tribes (between 409 and 711 AD) – but these occupiers also adopted the local Vulgar Latin dialects. In 711 the Moorish invasion of the Iberian Peninsular brought Arabic to the region, which had some impact on the development of the local language.
Vulgar Latin gradually evolved into Galician-Portuguese, which was spoken throughout the medieval Kingdom of Galicia. After Portugal broke off to become a separate kingdom in 1130, Portuguese was established as the official language of that country.
The spread of the Portuguese Empire in the 15th and 16th centuries took the language across the world, to Latin America, Africa and Asia.
Which countries have Portuguese as a national language?
Portuguese is the only official language of Portugal, Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, and São Tomé and Príncipe. It also has co-official status in Macau and East Timor.
How many people speak Portuguese as their first language?
It is estimated that over 200 million people speak Portuguese as their first language worldwide, making it the second most widely spoken Romance language (after Spanish), the third most spoken European language, and the seventh most spoken of all languages in the world.
Did you know…
- There are up to 1,000 words derived from Arabic in Modern Portuguese. These mainly relate to food, agriculture, crafts and place names (the latter especially in the south, eg the Algarve and Fátima).
- Although there are several different Portuguese dialects, the two major classifications are European (or Standard) Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese. These developed along slightly different lines from around the 18th century onwards; in Portugal the language was influenced by French, while in Brazil it was influenced by Italian and other European languages.
- The Portuguese were the first Europeans to reach and establish trade links with Japan (in 1542) and they brought their language with them. There are many Japanese words of Portuguese origin, including: arukooru/alcool/alcohol; botan/botão/button; kirishitan/cristão/christian; pan/pão/bread.
The Portuguese economy
Portugal has a mixed economy, rated (as of 2013) as the 49th largest in the world. It has become increasingly diverse and service-based since joining the European Community (predecessor to the European Union) in 1986.
Portugal’s main import/export partners are other members of the EU.

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.

I use Matinee a lot for subtitling projects
I use Matinee for a lot of subtitling projects and they never fail to meet the deadlines. Great customer service and fast responses. Well done to the entire team.
Jade BurnellThe Big Word
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.
