Hi João,

I could try do the wiki thing, could you give me any hints how it works?

As for the portuguese in Brazil, it really seems like that much of a big
thing, over my own expectations. Just so you know, what I heard the most
when I translated this to english now was that the biggest deal of it is
that it wasn't in english. Although I know that the main info is the help of
every object and people need english for that. Anyway, it seems that even if
they can reasonably get along with english, it just feels much more
comfortable to check something in portuguese. I guess it also makes a
difference if the tutorial is not a direct translation of anything, but
something on its own.

Actually, me and somebody else once translated the Pd Menus and everything
to Brazilian Portuguese, the idea was that someday with pd 0.43 it'd be
possible to have Pd in different languages. What is the deal with that?
