Demais vs. demasiado

Could you tell me what the difference is between demais and demasiado?

@denise, “demasiado” is used before the concerned word and “demais” is used after:
– É demasiado tarde. (It’s too late)
– É tarde demais. (It’s too late)

Both sound natural and are very commonly used in European Portuguese nowadays, and you can choose what to use according to personal preference. In Brazilian Portuguese, ‘demasiado’ is rarely used.
