TidBITS in Portuguese!

Send Article to a Friend

TidBITS in Portuguese! We're especially pleased to welcome our latest translation of TidBITS, this time into Portuguese. If you or someone you know would prefer to read TidBITS in Portuguese, check out the Web page below. Special thanks are due to Henrique Penha <hpenha@qmail.com>, who put together a team of six translators and is coordinating the effort. More volunteers would be extremely welcome, so if you're interested in helping, send Henrique email.

As always, let me know at <ace@tidbits.com> if you want to help with any TidBITS translation. We've had some interest in Italian and Russian translations but have lacked either a strong coordinator to get things rolling or enough translators to make the amount of work manageable. [ACE]
