Does Anyone in Rancho Murieta Speak Portuguese?

On April 19th through April 24th, I will be hosting a Brazilian Exchange Student and I'm wondering if there is anyone in the community that speaks Portuguese?  This young gentleman will be touring our county and learning about our wine industry.  He and four others are sponsored by the Rotary Club of Rancho Murieta and the Rotary District 5180.  If you know of someone or speak the language yourself, I would be very appreciative if I could call on you should this young mans English be very limited.

I can be reached at 916.354.2188 or lilli_duval@sbcglobal.net

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Portuguese translation

You might try the new Google translation program.  It is at http://translate.google.com/translate.  The program offers you a text box and the ability to select the language you type and the the language you want translated.  There are a variety of languages available and I think you could carry on quite a conversation in this fashion. You can also cut and paste either text or a web sites to the text box and get a complete translation.  My wife has used it to translate Russian geneology documents into English and has been very pleased.
