Translation from English into Portuguese is very bad.

That's great. I often have things I find on the Internet (images) that I want translated, but I don't know or have the proper keyboards to type them. Even for surfing the web, this will be a big leap forward (hint: don't tell me if the functionality was already there and I just didn't realize it).
