They have the same translation - a/an. But they are used differently.
In Portuguese, words have a gender. "um" is the masculine indefinite article and "uma" is the feminine indefinite article.
You use "um" before masculine nouns, and "uma" before feminine ones.
Um menino = A boy
Uma menina = A girl
Um livro = A book
Uma mesa = A table
