Bad Translation

The Portuguese version of adblock is kind of a joke. It's translated from English to Portuguese(BR) which is Portuguese from Brazil which sounds really bad. When I was installing adblock and I was redirected to the installing/donate page I saw the text about the developer and his wife was written in a formal and not formal way at the same time. Yeah, that sounds bad, and thats what Brazilian sounds like. No hate here, but I would advise you to get a Portuguese(PT) which is Portuguese from Portugal translator.
In Portugal they speak the real Portuguese, Portuguese(PT).
I don't understand why pages always get translated to Brazilian since Portuguese(PT) is the real Portuguese and Portuguese(BR) is just a cheap version of the real Portuguese language. It's like English, the real English is the British English, American English is just a cheap verion of the real English.

    Hi Anon,

    We both have Portuguese (Portugal) and Portuguese (Brazilian) translations, which are loaded depending on your browser's locale. If you're seeing the Brazilian version, it probably means that your browser is set to that locale instead of the Portugal one.
