Dossier: portuguese & Brazilian
Introduction
There are several publishers who published Portuguese editions of Asterix.
In Portugal we first saw Livraria Bertrand & Livraria IBIS then Livraria Bertrand alone followed by Verbo and Meribérica-Liber. Todays publisher is Editorial ASA.
In Brazil we see Bruguera who later changed name into Cedibra. Todays publisher for the Brazil market is Editora Record. Some Brazilian titles have two different versions, whereas other titles have one version used by the last two Brazilean publishers. Our investigation is recorded below.

With one exception, the new editions were translated by Cláudio Varga, see the Y marks in the last column.
Sometimes the changes between both versions are only minimal.
