Hi Mark,

I probably should have been a bit more detailed, I was looking at the
template as you described through the Mailman UI and I was comparing that
with the source code from the rendered page, they're quite similar.
However your extra information and the pointer to look in the folder made
me realise what the mistake was.  I'd assumed that the template was
supposed to be in English and that some programming magic happened
elsewhere to change the lanuage.  That's obviously not the case, so I put
the copy of the translation into the pt_BR folder as you suggested and that
fixed the issue.

Many thanks for the help and detailed explanations.  I really appreciate it.
