Please, I'm not speak english very well. LeandroTelesRocha (talk) 17:23, 9 February 2015 (UTC)

Welcome. It seems we currently have only one article posted in Portuguese: aquecimento global. There are a few in other languages here: category:babel. ΨΣΔξΣΓΩΙÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 19:59, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, I'm an awful English Monolinguist, so I can't help. Feel free to make any Portuguese pages you think you can do justice to. Ikanreed (talk) 20:07, 9 February 2015 (UTC)
Does RationalWiki have a translation guide? I'm willing to translate some texts to PT-BR. --Lgallindo (talk) 20:42, 10 June 2016 (UTC)
There are some guidelines here to get you started.--Кřěĵ (ṫåɬк) 02:08, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
I thought we had voted earlier at some point that we'd generally discourage non-english articles and sources? Not to send good editors away of course (they're welcome!), but, just checking if I misremember here? *shrugs* Reverend Black Percy (talk) 02:12, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
I believe what you are referring to was a consensus that there should be more than one user who knows a given non-English language, so that the articles written don't turn out to be (unbeknowest to the rest of the userbase) anti-missional. I (and another RWikian, if I remember right) can understand Portuguese, so I don't think that's a problem.--Кřěĵ (ṫåɬк) 02:16, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
Oh yeah! I remember, I offered to do that with Swedish; atleast since there are many good sources for certain things in Swedish which I can then translate and use on our article pages that are in English (rather than, y'know, there being any type of "market" whatsoever round these parts for articles written by us in Swedish).

I have little interest in writing new stuff, due to my complete lack of writing skills and weird humor, but I'm very interested in translating some more "apologetic" parts of RationalWiki, some brain-teasing essays and some hard science stuff. So it should be somewhat easy to check whatever I write in Portuguese. Finding PT-BR sources to complement the ones in english will be a pain tho. --Lgallindo (talk) 14:50, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
"Complete lack of writing skills and wierd humor"? Why, you'd make sysop in a day! Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:13, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
