Hello Everyone on the SW List!

First, I would like to welcome Geneva to the SW List. You are most
definitely on the SignWriting List, Geneva :-)

And I also want to thank you for telling us that there was a confusion in
your email. Email Lists are never perfect, and sometimes messages do not
always connect properly.

And that is exactly what happend to me today! Eduardo Gheller Morschbacher
from Brazil posted a message to the SW List today, but I did not receive
the message! I only received an empty message. Isn't that strange?

So...when I saw Geneva's message...I looked in the SignWriting List Archive
on the web - and sure enough - there was a message from Brazil from
Eduardo, which I never received!

So...Thank you, Eduardo, for your Portuguese translations - I am most grateful!

So in case other members of the List did not receive Eduardo's message
today, here it is:

There are the translation for the terms into Portuguese:

SignWriter 5.0 - I think that this term might be kept as is because is the
name of software, in the same way we have the Word, Access, Powerpoint,
PageMaker, Corel
Draw, etc.

Valerie :-) (the smile is "Sorriso" in portuguese).


Well, that's all and someone can correct my mistakes, if here have one. I
avoided as possible the neologism. For example, the word "Delete" might be
translated into
"Excluir", not the neologism "Deletar" (that's sounds like as in english).
Eduardo :o)
