Actually Paulo has already translated the user interface in eToys to
Portuguese and his work is included in the Squeak images for OLPC. So
you just have to select a menu option to change this (I don't have it
running here and so can't give you the exact instructions).

A separate issue is that the various projects include texts which for
now are only available in English. It wouldn't be hard to go through
each one replacing the texts but then keeping this new image in sync
with the development one would become increasingly difficult. A smarter
solution is needed.
