Sociedade Bíblica do Brasil won’t allow us to.

	It has been several months since I have been able to pay attention to
this, but I have a copy of Tradução Brazileira from 1917.  It may not seem
much more recent than the João Ferreira de Almeida Revista e Corrigida from
1911, but it is: while still in the old orthography, it was a new, Brazilian
translation, not a Portuguese one from the XVII century.

	I have a copy I have been wanting to digitise for ages now, but
non-destructively.  This next week I am planning to try again to obtain a book
digitiser, and then put it up at PGDP too.  When, at a further phase, we can
have its orthography updated, it should be on par with the best translations

	There is another line which is the João Ferreira de Almeida Revisada,
which several people — including me! ;-) — consider the best Brazilian
Portuguese translation today.  Its publisher, JUERP, has been the only one not
to close the door on us, but I have been needing to follow up on them for
several months now.  Another task for the next few weeks.
