Phonetic transcription can help you improve your Portuguese pronunciation

Portuguese pronunciation may present some difficulties to people starting to learn Portuguese. The pronunciation rules in the Portuguese language are pretty complicated. There are a lot of Portuguese letters that can be pronounced in different ways.

This online translator allows you to convert Portuguese text to phonetic transcription using International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) symbols.

This tool will serve as a Portuguese pronunciation guide. It will help you save time during your first steps in Portuguese, while you are still learning the pronunciation rules. If you use the phonetic transcription regularly in combination with Portuguese audio and video recordings, your pronunciation and listening skills in the Portuguese language will improve.

This phonetic translator supports both European and Brazilian Portuguese.

Highlighting of high-frequency Portuguese words

If you click Advanced options, you will see a special option that allows you to highlight high-frequency Portuguese words. The words from different frequency intervals will be highlighted in the following colors:

1–1000 1001–2000 2001–3000 3001–4000 4001–5000

If you want to make the frequency analysis of your text and obtain the detailed statistics, please use Portuguese word frequency counter.
