Subject:  Translating the Message from Brazil....


SignWriting List
August 13, 2000

Dear SW List Members...

To give you an example of how to translate a message....

I copied the message written in Portuguese (see below), and went to
this web page:

AltaVista Translation Service on the Web (free)
http://babelfish.altavista.digital.com/translate.dyn

I pasted the Portuguese message into the translation box, and this is
what I got (it is not great English, but it is good enough to figure
out what the author wanted to say):

English translation:
