  1. If you are translating any materials or doing live translation, in what languages will you support these needs? Who will be responsible for doing the translations?
    Portuguese. I´ll be responsible for the translation work alone.
  2. Is there anything else you want to tell us about this project?
    The Wikipedia.pt community is currently hosting discussions on the Implementation of the Movement Strategy and the impact, challenges and possibilities, of its initiatives on our community. The translation is therefore intended to facilitate understanding for all, especially those marginalized by language barriers. This work aims to increase the autonomy of the community and to broaden the participation and possibility of projects by users and groups who may feel discouraged by the constant use of the English language.
