When crossing geographical borders, advertising must adapt to the new reality of the country to which it will be transported. In this article, we have chosen to study the responsiveness of television advertising for the famous French “Laughing Cow” in Portugal, what were the choices/adaptations made by the translators to convey the marketing message of this specific product in a country other than France, analysing not only the French source text and its Portuguese translation, but first of all by recalling the context, its importance in the interpretation process because there is only contextualized discourse, and we know that meaning cannot truly be assigned to utterances that are out of context.
