Lulu in Portuguese

Status: New Idea!

Good day

Portuguese language is the sixth/seventh most spoken language in the world, with around 190 million speakers
Check http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_languages_by_number_of_native_speakers

On the other hand, when it concerns Internet users by language, Portuguese is on the top 5
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Internet_usage

Please kindly add Portuguese language, if feasible, on the lulu international option website.

Thank you so very much

Kind regards

Looking at that list, what about Mandarin with a total of 1025 million? Or the other 3 languages mentioned above Portuguese that Lulu also do not support?

In the second list you are missing the point that 56% of world sites support English.

I get your point, and it as been asked for before, but if you look at both those lists the figures drop drastically from the top 4 downwards. In fact on the last list, they drop drastically from the number one spot! Number 2 is just 6.5%!

English was once said to be the language of the world with French second (both as second languages) but I assume that was before anyone counted the people in China!

Dear João Pimentel

Would you agree to translate? It is not easy for american English speaking people to write in portugese. I propsed to fix the german spelling mistakes and to replace wrong words. They are considering it (at least).

So I think, best would be to contact Andy Trus and propose him to help translating at least the customer side (the web shop) of Lulu.

Translating the webshop would be a low-cost, big step towards a larger exposition of Lulu books in the Portuguese world.
