As any other highly evolved and diversified language, Portuguese has its own challenges when translating. When translated from English, the Portuguese needs approximately 30% more text, depending on the context of the matter. This text expansion, usually because of the fact that it needs more words to say something in Portuguese, creates difficulties in formatting the documents and DTP.

In the next few centuries however, it got diverged into the type spoken in its homeland Portugal and its colonies, especially Brazil. Portuguese not having a regulatory international body to keeps its purity has added to its divergence. Portuguese is expected to gain prominence and become more widespread due to the predominance of Brazil in South America making the study of the language at schools mandatory even by its neighboring countries like Argentina and Uruguay.
