I have a digital wizard-like survey that has multiple pages with buttons "previous", "save" and "next" on it.

What term would sound more natural to label the button "Next", to prompt a user to proceed to the next page?

(1) Siguiente or (2) Seguinte?

  • "(1) Siguiente" Is not in Portuguese, so that's not even an option. – Hugo May 26 '20 at 2:59

In PT-BR, you could use:

  • Back -> Anterior
  • Back -> Voltar
  • Next -> Próximo
  • Next -> Continuar
  • Save -> Salvar
  • Cool, thank you! What about pt-PT are terms similar? – McV May 14 '20 at 9:48
  • @McV The answer from CIMend refers to pt-PT. – stafusa May 14 '20 at 22:52
  • I don't think that CIMend's answer is pt-PT. (If it is, it should say so! The question is asking for pt-BR.) In pt-PT installation wizards, I think that the idiomatic word for "next" is "seguinte". – ANeves thinks SE is evil May 15 '20 at 14:01

    @McV the literal translation "salvar" is not used in pt-PT. We use guardar (or, more uncommonly, gravar). – Artefacto May 15 '20 at 15:34

In Portuguese, you could use, like in the example shown in the image below:

  • Back -> Anterior
  • Next -> Continuar
  • Save -> Guardar

an example installer, showing the next-save-previous buttons in Portuguese

  • Continuar também é utilizado e é equivalente a próximo – ClMend May 15 '20 at 9:32
  • Your answer offers two options for "next". It should explain their differences. – ANeves thinks SE is evil May 15 '20 at 13:58
  • Continuar is also plausible imho. – Hugo May 26 '20 at 3:01
