so are there other contexts for promotor in portuguese or does it just refer to wedding planners? the word in English does not carry much meaning as far as a job title, at least to me...I would only use that word in certain circumstances like possibly "he is a promoter of change" or something like that...I guess I'm a little confused as to what this means
So what is the usual meaning in Brazil/Portugal ? Prosecutor may be used in english for the one who inquire about some criminal activities. In french a "promoteur" is someone who is promoting and we often use it for the job of buying land and building houses (promoteur immobilier), it is also someone who advocate/support something : Un grand promoteur du marché (ie a néo liberal).
