I am looking for recent examples of recent of marketing/ advertsiment translation in Brazil, such as the "Dove" campaign in UK and Brazil and also mistakes that have been made in the when companies try to translate their names or slogans into a different language - like the case of Ford Pinto - Ford Corcel.
Any examples, links to websites, articles, books about the subject.

Marcella,

For Pinto -> Ford Corcel is not a mistake, I guessicon_smile.gif)

The easiest way to find advertising in Brazil is to visit Brazilian websites, MSN Brasil, for instance.
