    Default Continental Portuguese

    Hello!

    Reading a translations price list I found "Portuguese Continental" and I am not sure what it means exactly.
    I ussually find the two varieties of this languaged reffered as European Portuguese and Brazilian Portuguese but the word Continental is ambiguous.

    I have heard English people refer to Europe as The Continent but I am not quite sure that applies in this context.

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey Clarita,

    You are right, it comes from European Portuguese... se the link below for further explanation:

    Cheers!

    Continental Portuguese is the eurocentrical way of refering to the Portuguese of Portugal.
