    In Portuguese, if someone ask me if I'm Brazilian, I can answer just "sim" (yes) or, say "sim, eu sou" (Yes, I'm) which show my answer more true. But, in Russian, the word-by-word translantion should be "да, я".

    So, my question is: Is there some way to show to who asks that my answer is really true, that I'm conviction that it's correct?

    That will depend entirely on the question. In this case you will have to repeat what was asked:
    -Вы бразилец?
    -Да, бразилец.

    "Да. Совершенно верно." would be another answer.
