I sent Juliano (off-list) a file which contains most of the needed  
translated words/phrases, along with instructions on how to merge.  
But later he said this wasn't the real problem.

The real problem is how understand and use those projects (sent in  
the test machines) by teachers and kids who don't know english. My  
reply was either translate them in a individual basis, or create new  
ones and send them to this list. Or both.
