Cissokho in at Valencia
Valencia CF have filled the void left by Jordi Alba's move to FC Barcelona by signing French international defender Aly Cissokho in a €6m deal from Olympique Lyonnais.
UEFA Champions League hopefuls Valencia CF have announced the capture of French international full-back Aly Cissokho from Olympique Lyonnais.
Cissokho, 24, has agreed terms on a four-year deal with Mauricio Pellegrino's side and has cost the Mestalla club a reported fee of €6m. Valencia sporting director Braulio Vázquez sees Cissokho as the perfect replacement for Jordi Alba who left for FC Barcelona earlier this summer.
"Aly has significant experience having played at the top level in the Champions League as well as gaining a cap for France," he said. "He is physically and defensively very strong and, along with Jérémy Mathieu, will increase the competition for places in our team, especially down the left side."
Cissokho rose to prominence in the Portuguese top flight where he made 28 appearances for Vitória FC and FC Porto in 2008/09. A €15m switch to Lyon followed for the defender who managed one goal in 93 Ligue 1 games over three full seasons with Les Gones.
The former French Cup winner joins fellow newcomers Nelson Valdez, Andrés Guardado, João Pereira, Fernando Gago and Sergio Canales at a new-look Valencia who opened their Liga campaign with a 1-1 draw at title holders Real Madrid CF last weekend. Pellegrino's team begin their UEFA Champions League challenge from the group stage.

Cissokho no Valência
O Valencia CF preencheu a lacuna criada pela ida de Jordi Alba para o FC Barcelona contratando o internacional francês Aly Cissokho ao Olympique Lyonnais, por seis milhões de euros.
O Valência CF, com aspirações na UEFA Champions League, anunciou a contratação do internacional francês Aly Cissokho ao Olympique Lyonnais.
O lateral, de 24 anos, fica ligado à formação de Mauricio Pellegrino pelas próximas quatro temporadas, por uma verba de seis milhões de euros. Braulio Vázquez, director desportivo do clube “che”, considera-o o substituto perfeito para Jordi Alba, que se transferiu para o FC Barcelona no início do defeso.
“O Aly tem muita experiência, já tendo jogado ao mais alto nível na Champions League e pela selecção de França”, comentou. “É muito forte, fisicamente, e muito bom a defender, e ele e o Jérémy Mathieu vão disputar muito uma vaga na equipa, principalmente no flanco esquerdo”.
Cissokho começou por se destacar na Liga portuguesa, onde fez 28 jogos pelo Vitória FC, de Setúbal, e pelo FC Porto, na temporada de 2008/09. Depois transferiu-se, a troco de 15 milhões de euros, para o Lyon, onde apontou um jogo em 93 jogos na Ligue 1 nas três temporadas naquele clube.
O antigo vencedor da Taça de França junta-se a outras contratações recentes, como João Pereira, Nelson Valdez, Andrés Guardado, Fernando Gago e Sergio Canales, de um renovado Valência que se estreou na Liga espanhola, no último fim-de-semana, com um empate 1-1 em casa do campeão, o Real Madrid CF. Os comandados de Pellegrino iniciam a sua participação na UEFA Champions League na fase de grupos.

My name is Dinis Ermida and I am a translator from Portugal used to deliver quality translation works even with short delivery times.
Here are a few things you may not know about Portuguese translators:
a) Here in Portugal, TV stations and cinemas DO NOT dub over the original voices in movies, TV shows, names, titles, etc., as they do in Spain, France, Italy and many, many other countries. Only TV shows and movies specially directed at children get dubbed over — and even in that case it is very frequent that theatres sell tickets for both a dubbed AND an original version.
b) Besides that, Portugal wonderful beaches, beautiful landscapes and historical monuments, along with the well-known hospitality of our People, have attracted visitors from a great deal of countries, especially native speakers of English, Spanish, French and Italian.
c) Finally, Portuguese children have access to formal teaching in foreign languages — in some schools, starting as early as at the age of 4 (first foreign language) and 6 (second foreign language). By the time they reach 18 and finish their mandatory schooling, Portuguese young might have been exposed to free, 2 to 8-hours-a-week classes of English, German, Spanish, French, Latin or others, for the duration of one school year, at least, to 14 school years.
All this allows all language-skilled people to grow up listening to a great deal of foreign languages, and helps explain why we Portuguese are so apt at using other languages, especially English and Spanish.
Since I was 16, I started helping some friends of my family's, who worked for foreign multinationals operating here in Portugal, with translations from several European languages. The pressure for a quality work, despite the short time available, never stopped, as I entered my professional life, and it has made me a proficient translator.
My training in Law and my interest in literature, technology and sports have made me a versatile, broad-scope translator with a keen eye for dead-lines. Give me a chance to prove it!
