Good news for my fellow Brazilians who are interested and eager to visit Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates: Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority has finally created a Portuguese version of www.visitabudhabi.ae/br.
With Etihad Airways now operating a daily nonstop flight to São Paulo, Brazil, the idea is to draw the attention of Brazilian tourists to Abu Dhabi, which is often overcast by the ever-so-popular Dubai.
As a comms professional, I obviously had to go in and explore the new version. Overall, despite some typos and a weird mix-up of languages here and there, it is quite good. I am sure you will find it easy to navigate and read through.
The only thing I can’t quite get over is the following:
The website has eight other versions - Arabic, English, French, German, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Mandarin. So why is it that they have named the ninth version Brazilian? Sorry, but in Brazil we don’t speak Brazilian, we speak Portuguese!
