Addresses in Portugal

Whenever you send a shipment to an individual or customer in another country, it is important to ensure that you address the package in the language that is used most there. In Portugal, Portuguese is spoken as a first language, and even though most citizens can speak English make sure you don't translate phrases etc. into English. Portuguese addresses are notably different form their UK counterparts. Their postcodes are made up of digits and place names. Seven numbers are separated with a hyphen after the first four, after the 7th number a location is named.
