Portuguese Version of RoMEO Released

SHERPA Services is pleased to announce that a new Portuguese language version of its RoMEO database is now available at:


Both the interface captions and the RoMEO data itself have been translated from the original English by our colleagues in Project Blimunda that was commissioned by RCAAP initiative, Portugal. The new version is the first output from the partnership we announced in August.

We plan to release further language versions in the future. Please contact us if you are interested in any specific languages and would like to help with translations.
