How to say You’re Welcome in Portuguese
As it happens in English, when someone say ‘thank you’, one must acknowledge the gesture by saying ‘you’re welcome’. The same goes for the Portuguese Language.
De nada means You’re Welcome
De nada is the word used in Portuguese to say You’re Welcome. Its usage is very simple and it doesn’t vary in number or in gender as it happens with other words in Portuguese.
Obrigado por ter me ajudado com a mudança. / De nada! (Thank you for helping me out with the moving. / You’re welcome!).
Obrigada pelo presente! / De nada. (Thank you for the present! / You’re welcome).
You may also hear ‘Obrigado você’
It’s not uncommon (especially in Brazil) hear people saying ‘obrigado você’ after someone says ‘obrigado’. ‘Obrigado você’ doesn’t quite have a direct translation to English and it’s almost as if the conversation went ‘thank you’ / ‘no, than you!’. Let’s see some examples:
Obrigado pelo jantar. / Obrigado você, adorei a companhia! (Thanks for the dinner. / No thank you, I loved you company!).
A very useful tip to know when to use ‘obrigado você’ is to think if both people benefited from the action. If so, you can say ‘obrigado você’ because you feel that you also have to thank the other person.
