Please configure your preferred languages to what you want. You asked
for Portuguese (pt) and that is what you got. If you only want to be
served Portuguese from Portugal, then use pt_PT.

I'm not sure what you mean by the way "it's usually done". The standard
for preferred language has been around for years and we have been using
it for at least three years on the site.
