Literary - Books translated so far:

 _ The Life of Gaugin (English / Portuguese), by Parkstone or Sirrocco. Parkstone or Sirrocco or Parkstone Press International never paid for my translation, although it was integrally published in December 2005 by a portuguese company called Lisma-Edição e Distribuição de Livros, Lda. Which means that I still own the translation copyrights.

 _ La Orden Negra (Spanish / Portuguese) - José Calvo Poyato, Campo das Letras, Porto. A crime and mystery novel about some documents lost in Barcelona during the Nazi period, goes back to the 12th century.
