How to say nice to meet you in Portuguese
We have many ways of saying nice to meet you in Portuguese. As other languages, the choice depends on the place where you are and who you are talking to.
You can use nice to meet you in Portuguese at the beginning of the conversation or at the end, it’s up to you.
So here’s a list of the ways to say nice to meet you in Portuguese and the level of formality of each one:
|Prazer em conhecer-te||Pleased to meet you||More formal|
|Prazer em conhecê-lo/la||Pleased to meet you||Formal|
|Prazer em te conhecer||Nice to meet you||Less formal/ normal|
|Prazer em conhecer você||Nice to meet you||Less formal/ normal|
|Muito prazer||It was a big pleasure||Less formal/ normal|
|Satisfação||Alright||Less formal/ normal|
|Prazer||A pleasure||Less formal/ normal|

Notice that we use prazer em conhecê-lo to men and prazer em conhecê-la to women.
Example with muito prazer meaning in Portuguese
Now let’s watch a video. Don’t forget to turn the subtitles on!
As you could see in the video, two people meet for the first time and this is their dialogue:
Diogo: Oi! Meu nome é Diogo, prazer.
Doddi: Oi! Tudo bom? Meu nome é Doddi. Muito prazer.
Diogo: O prazer é meu!
Diogo: Hi! My name is Diogo, nice to meet you.
Doddi: Hi! You ok? My name is Doddi, pleased to meet you.
Diogo: My pleasure!
Notice that when someone tells you pleased to meet you, you can answer the pleasure is mine back.
