I was looking at the jobs page and found out that suddenly all jobs for Portuguese have a (BR). Are all jobs for Brazilian Portuguese? I don't think so... I've tried and didn't find any job for European Portuguese.
Even jobs that once were to Portuguese (EU) were change to (BR). Why??

Same question Apr 25, 2006

I was going to ask the same question. When I tried to edit my profil, all my language pairs were changed to portuguese (BR) and I want to add some terms to my glossary and it only appears portguese (BR). What happened?

Portuguese BR Apr 25, 2006

And I was looking at kudoz questions right now and found that there is only the "Portuguese ( BR)" language!!!

Before I had my dinner there was nothing but "Portuguese". My own questions today are named as "Portuguese (BR)>English". And I certainly didn't choose that option. What is happening here?

I'm glad I'm not the only one confused Apr 25, 2006

I'm glad I'm not the only one confused with this. This is so weird, because I don't know wether I can quote or not, because I am not sure if the jobs posted are really for Portuguese (BR)... But the most strange thing is that even my native language now appears as Portuguese(BR) and I am definitely Portuguese(EU)! I didn't choose that language.

My rates and working languages also indicate the Portuguese (BR) Apr 25, 2006

Can someone explain this? Suddenly the Portuguese (EU) was replaced by the Brazilian Portuguese???
Now my rates and working languages also indicate the same mistake. Is someone else having the same problem, beside me and Cristina?

I have just submitted a support request Apr 25, 2006

Site developers have been working on the Language Lists. I assume that Portuguese (EU) got lost inadvertently. I trust it will be back quickly.
