Great help! Thank you both. Unfortunately I can't give you both the deserved points. I am sure though I am going to have quite a few more questions for you as it is the first time I am translating construction issues from German into Portuguese although I have done a fair bit from English, and as the German-Port translators are rare I will try my luck with your expertise!
