We will attend Eletrolar show in St.Paulo,Brazil,in July.
The company website are under constructing,English-Chinese-Portuguese,there are 3 languages for the website.
Is there anyone would help us to translate the company introduction in Portuguese?
We use Google translate,but there is a bit difference with the native Portuguese speaker.
Thanks for your help in advance.

I know the first place I would ask for help finding Portuguese translators is not a news forum website.

to the original poster
at least have the level of professionalism - if you are going to attend an international trade show - to hire a professional translator for each of the languages and don't rely on an online translation tool.
Otherwise you will end up with a version of Portuguese/Chinese or 'Chinglish'

cutting corners on something like this is NOT best practice and will make you look foolish and unprofessional in the eyes of the other international exhibitors.
you might think you are being clever and saving money by not translating professionally, but mistakes are noticed immediatly and say a lot about your business: 'I can't be bothered to show a professional image by translating properly, so I probably will cut corners when i do business with you just to save me money.'

EvaZhou - You really should not skimp on this.  Get your employers to hire a good professional translator as Portuguese is a notoriously difficult language in some areas. It's based on Vulgar Latin and and is a so called "Romance" language. In Brazil there are a number of sub dialects.  Please do NOT rely on web based translation packages or computer based etc as they are not reliable and they can and will make horrific mistakes in the grammar.
