I just had to note that I went to Babelfish to try and and verify the  
content of the new message added by Felipe with Derby-117:

SRV_PortNumber=O servidor está rodando na porta {0}.

I got a laugh when Babelfish translated it as:

The server is twirling in the door {0}.

:-)

I agree with Myrna, I think we should accept that the contributor's  
translation is correct. Plus, there was a longish discussion about  
this a month or two ago. Basically, if someone checks in updated  
translated files that change the previous translations, and someone  
fluent in the language feels that the new translations are incorrect,  
they can raise it as an issue on derby-dev. Otherwise, the new  
translations stand.
