Re: [Rd] Portuguese translation problem (PR#13756)

You were asked to report problems with translation to the appropriate translation team: see the section 'How to report a bug' of the FAQ.

For Brazilian Portuguese the translator listed is Fernando Henrique Ferraz P. da Rosa <>, not it seems far from you. The Brazilian Portuguese translations are drifting out of date, so he may appreciate offers of assistance.

In this case the word is spelled inconsistently in the translations so I am confident enough to make the change, but in general the R developers have outsourced language expertise to the translation teams.
