What would really be nice is a simple email alias that filters it through 
Google translate.

So, she emails it to a special list address, which then forwards her email to 
the list, but that email simply pipes it through
Google translate first ... Actually, that would be stupid easy to write.

Then she could subscribe to the Portuguese version of the list, because that 
same alias, when it receives an email, because it would
be subscribed, would forward it to her back translated into Portuguese.

... Hell, anyone want to help set this up?

Couple lines of Perl .... I think.

Take care,

Language barriers are always a problem.  But as quickly noted by Sina, and even 
I had done this, if this person really wants to stay
connected, do try Google Translate.  See if it works.  But maybe its too 
cumbersome.  I'd rather see us not quickly become focused
on English-speaking cultures, as there are other countries/cultures that
benefit from a11y.   We just have to go through these hurdles
sometimes.  :-(
