I'm using this ArcGIS map service as the basis for an application I'm developing.

However, this base map is in English, and for my application, it's necessary that the labels be displayed in Brazilian Portuguese.

Is it possible to change the language of this base map?

If this is not possible, is there an alternative to the ArcGIS map service where you can change the language?

You can't change that basemap, but there are localized alternatives. See this blog for a list of localized basemaps.

You'll notice in the blog, Brazilian Portuguese is available, with the Light Grey basemap. Note, these are VectorTile basemaps, not a "map service" like you reference. If you're working strictly in ArcGIS Online and webmaps there, it wont be a problem. If you're writing JavaScript to create a custom application, you'll need to ensure you use the right code to call VectorTiles.

or even better, compile your own.
