Hi Pedro,

Thanks for your feedback. That part is well understood.

However the gnucash policy is to add the country code only when needed.

"when needed" is either of:
- there are different translations for these countries. We only have one Portuguese translation, 
so this is not the case here
- the translation has highly country specific information. This I can't judge as I don't know 
Portuguese, nor whether the contents of your translation is specific to Portugal and won't apply 
(for most part) to say Brazil.

Do you judge your translation is highly targeted at Portugal only (like specific wordings that 
are sufficiently different from Brazil, or rules that are very local) ?

Note this is no big deal though, just a small inconsistency with the other translations.
