Why are my Portuguese keywords showing as low search volume?

I am creating my first Portuguese language campaign, as I'm targeting specific countries.  The very common keywords I chose should have been eligable, however they state low search volume.  Is this because I wrote them in Portuguese and would translate just fine on the Portuguese version of Google?

There are some keywords which just don't have that much search volume.  What is the size of the population in the area you're targeting. 

 

I have plenty of campaigns with keywords flagged as "low search volume", but they still work - they are just "long tail" search terms. 

 

Have you tried also running the same search terms in English?

 

Also make sure your match type(s) aren't too restrictive.
