Removing and replacing the keyboard on that model is fairly easy (see page 79 of the Hardware Maintenance Manual) but locating a Portuguese keyboard is far more difficult.     If you have a the backlit model, I did find one refurbished one available from a shop in the USA, but to ensure you get the right one for your laptop, you really need to provide the exact model number of your T470.

The backlilt part numbers I listed do work on your model, but I cannot find any source that has one in stock.    I do believe that you could swap out the backlit keyboard with a non-backlit one if desired however as the reverse (going from non-backlit to backlit) is supported as detailed in this forum post if you cannot locate a backlit version.     

 

You might contact Lenovo Encompass Parts to see if they can locate you one (they show it back orderded - 45 days out), but in my experience that usually means that it will not ever become available.    Still worth checking though.

 

Also check with local computer repair shops in your region, because you might get lucky and find a used one from a dead t470

 

Best of luck,

Another option you might consider would be keep your existing keyboard, and simply apply transparent stickers with the Portuguese layout.     Once applied you would just configure Windows to use the new Portuguese layout.
