I wanted to tell this by an e-mail, but since I couldn't find it, I'm telling this here...

Recently, I started to translate Last Chance to See to brazilian portuguese. Currently, I'm the only person doing this.
I have translated...I dunno, around 16% of the text, and I am slowly posting them on this blog:
http://lctsbrasil.wordpress.com/

Last Chance to See was never published in Brazil, so, I took this task to myself. If someone shows interest in publishing Last Chance to See in portuguese and wants to use my translation, I would be very grateful, but I think I would only let them use it if they donated some money to the groups that appear on the book (of course this donation will be a lot smaller than tha price of a normal translation!).

Sincerely,
Baiji.
