Re: Bibles in Portuguese
The issue isn't proof reading a text. The crux of this issue is that there is no such thing as the "João Ferreira de Almeida Atualizada". It's a corrupted copyrighted text, probably renamed to hide its source.

There are numerous discussions of this issue to be found around the web, for example: http://pt.wikisource.org/wiki/Discuss%C3%A3o:Ferreira_de_Almeida_Atualizada

I have checked the "João Ferreira de Almeida Atualizada" text against a number of Portuguese translations (both in print and in electronic editions). It is clearly derivative of copyrighted texts but I have not found any text by that title to exist.

You don't have to take my word for it, but you will be wasting your time if you don't.
