Portuguese to English: Brazilian Economic Scenario
Source text - Portuguese Em 2005 o crescimento da décima maior economia mundial ficou muito atrás do esperado. O Banco Central corrigiu o prognóstico, no seu mais atual relatório sobre inflação, de 3,4% para 2,6%. Problemas climáticos e sanitários atacaram o setor agrícola; os juros altos e a valorização do Real frearam a indústria e as exportações. A comissão de economia da ONU para América Latina (Cepal) prevê para o Brasil um crescimento de somente 2,5%. Com isto, o país se tornaria a ‘lanterninha’ e ficaria bem abaixo do crescimento médio da região, que é de 4,3%.
Translation - English In 2005, however, the tenth largest economy in the world grew below the expectations. In its recent inflation report, The Brazilian Central Bank changed its 3.4% projection to 2.6%. The agricultural sector was hurt by climatic and sanitary problems; the industrial sector and exports slowed down because of the high interest rates and the appreciated Real. The UN Economic Commission for Latin America (ECLAC) estimates the Brazilian economy will grow only 2.5%. In that case, the country's growth rate would be far below the region’s average rate of 4.3%.
English to Portuguese: Freight contract
Source text - English Should the vessel be discharged at the rate less than the average, the Buyer shall pay to Seller demurrage at a rate of US $ 2500.00 (Two Thousand Five Hundred United States Dollars) per running day. If buyer fails to pay demurrage charges for any shipment under this contract, seller shall without incurring default under this contract, have the right to delay or terminate further shipment until any past due demurrage is paid by unconditional Swift wire.
Translation - Portuguese Caso o tempo de descarga da mercadoria fique acima do tempo de estadia fixado, o Comprador deverá pagar ao Vendedor uma taxa de demora no valor de USD 2.500,00 (dois mil e quinhentos dólares americanos) por dia de atraso. Caso o Comprador deixe de pagar as taxas de demora referentes às mercadorias transportadas sob este contrato, o Vendedor terá o direito de, sem incorrer em infração deste contrato, atrasar ou cancelar quaisquer envios futuros de mercadorias até que as taxas de demora vencidas sejam pagas impreterivelmente por meio de transferência bancária.
