English term or phrase: containers, gate, ship/shore, stripping/stuffing
Hello dear colleagues!

I am translating a text (English into Portuguese) on a information system for container terminals (port area). There are some terms to which I don't know the equivalent in Portuguese:

containers - I have seen the word "contêineres" being used in some port brochures. What do you think?

gate - The term is related to the port terminal gate. Should I translate it as "portão", "pórtico" ou "porta"? Or should I use the English word?

ship/shore - Would the term "navio/margem" be suitable?

stripping/stuffing - The term is related to the packing and unpacking of containers. I have seen the term "desova" for stripping. What about 'stuffing'?

I would be very thankful if you could help me.

Thanks a lot and good work.

Márcia

Portuguese translation:there you go...
Explanation:
- contêiner, contêineres
- gate = portão
- gates = portões
- ship = navio
- stripping = desovar (verb)
= desova (noun)
- stuffing = estufar (verb)
= estufagem (noun)
- shore = depends. In your context, I would say "terra" or "em terra".

Good luck.

Explanation:
In your case I strongly suggest you to chech all your doubts in the Oxford-Duden Pictorial Portuguese -English Dictionary, because it has pictures and can give you a precise ideia of what you are looking for. Anyway, you have to clarify if you need the terms in Europeen Portuguese or Barazilian portuguese because the terms are quite different.
Good Luck for you translation.

Explanation:
A tradução do Luciano (#2) está ótima. Eu apenas mudaria "shore" que em vez de "em terra" eu diria "no porto".

Explanation:
In Portugal we say "contentores". The Terminal is where the ships come to an halt (can also be used for all other means of transportation, eg. Bus Terminal, so you can use "portão da estação terminal" if not just "portão". We say Pontão=shore, where the ship moors. Stripping and stuffing I understand it as you said unpacking and packing, respectively. Hope this helps.
