 > I see that in torbutton and tor-launcher, we have both `pt` and `pt-BR`
 containing differents translations:

 > Were we using the `pt` one before, and this change makes us use the `pt-
 BR` one now?

 No, I don't think so. I guess what happens is the following: we ship `pt-
 PT` bundles now but looking at the above links there is no so locale.
 Rather, we only have `pt` and `pt-BR`. The code is presumably falling back
 to `pt` (I have not checked that) which turns out to be `pt-BR` which we
 import during translation updates. I guess the same is happening with Tor
 Launcher. Now, the interesting part is what is going to happen if we
 switch to `pt-BR` officially? Then we probably use the `pr-BR` branch even
 though we only update the `pt` one every time. I guess we need to update
 the locale import scripts as well...
