[All Platforms][Other] Portuguese (Portugal) translation

Hello! I've seen that Spotify doesn't have a Portuguese (Portugal) translation, and I'm writing this to suggest, and possibly to help translating it. As Spotify today is the major Music Streaming App, it doesn't makes sense not having this translation, because it is one of the most ancient languages. Brazilian Portuguese is a variant of the mother Portuguese language, so, as an example, it would be the same to have Mexican Spanish instead of Spain's Spanish... I know that we're a fewer population, but still... The Brazilian Portuguese is very different than European Portuguese (spoken in many countries in Europe, including Portugal), while they have some similarities, there are certainly many differences in intonation, pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. Hopefully I have your attention!!

I am Brazilian and I fully agree with Salvas18LK. I understand his/her suggestion since I don’t like to read text written in European Portuguese.

 

There is a spelling agreement to uniform Portuguese language that was signed in 1990 by several countries that use Portuguese as official language. IMHO it was a terrible ideia since it removes our culture traces (from all countries). It was signed only for business reason.

I do agree. If there was only portugal variation I woulddn't feel like my mother language because the 2 country use some variation that are understandable but not usually the same in both countrys, thw way and words we use to express something sometimes change. so +vote for the portuguese people have more personilized app, remembering that african countrys that speak portuguese, use it more closed to the portugal.

I hope this thread will get to his objective! However, this thread (https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/Mobile-Other-Let-users-choose-the-app-language-instead-o...) seems easier to happen, so I invite you to vote as in a way for us to have the mobile devices in the language that we prefer! My Android app was in English, but suddenly it appeared in Brazilian Portuguese. So, if we were able to change the app language, each person could have it in their own taste!
