I´m a brazilian woman and I lived in Sweden before. Now I live with my son (he did born in Sweden) and my son´s father in Germany. My son speaks only in german and sometimes I don´t understand what he says. He is 8 years old and I want he speak also portuguese. Is it too late for that? What should I do?

So you do understand some German? Maybe you should study it? And then have him study Portuguese.

I think the best way to go about this is yes it would be great for your son to learn another language, its never too late but have you thought about getting to know german better yourself? Get your son to help you learn that way its a great bonding between you two and you will understand him better, can never hurt to try good luck!
