We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Dear LINGUIST List subscribers,

I am a PhD student at the Linguistics Department of Faculdade de 
Ciências Sociais e Humanas of Universidade Nova de Lisboa. My 
research is focused on the importance of the Portuguese language in 
the global translation and localization market. 

Part of the study seeks to obtain the views of different actors in the 
language industry (Portuguese language service providers, companies 
operating in Portuguese speaking countries and  consumers) on the 
importance of translating and localizing "User Guides" and "Service 
Manuals" into Portuguese (both European and Brazilian).

Herewith, I would like to ask your cooperation to fill in a brief survey, in 
case you are translators into Portuguese, either a:

1. Translation company: 


2. Freelance translator: 

More information on the study is also available here: 


I thank you in advance for your kind cooperation,
