Hi again... I've done a little bit more research... More comments
Quoting Renato Moutinho <rmsilva_br at yahoo.com>:

The word "Proximo" is also used in English. Proximo, or prox, is a
dating method that specifies the date in the following month on which
mayment must be made in order to take a discount. For example,
2% 10th proximo means the bill must be paid prior to the 10th day
of the following month in order to take the discount.

No. The patch would be wrong....

This line is not corrupted. If you look even MORE closely you'll
see that this is part of a ComboBox declaration. These are the
"Entries" in the combo box. One entry is "Days". The Second entry
>> 1313 #: ../src/business/business-gnome/glade/billterms.glade.h:10
>> 1314 #, fuzzy
>> 1315 msgid ""
>> 1316 "Days\n"
>> 1317 "Proximo"
>> 1318 msgstr "Próximo"
This is a broken translation. The translation (msgstr) should include
both the translation of "Days" and the translation of "Proximo"

>> 1278 #: ../src/business/business-gnome/glade/billterms.glade.h:10
>> 1279 #, fuzzy
>> 1280 msgid ""
>> 1281 "Days\n"
>> 1282 "Proximo"
>> 1283 msgstr "Proximo"
Again, this is a broken translation.

No, you are not right. The glad file is correct; the translations

Andreas is correct here.
