Portuguese Translation - suggested correction

I had problems due to a bad translated item in the Portuguese language because the term used to translate the act of "entering a directory" (In portuguese up to now shows "Inserir diretório" - what is wrong in my oppinion) means "insert" and entering is one thing and inserting is another very different thing.

The way it is now ("Inserir diretório") suggests that clicking the folder, a NEW SUB DIRECTORY will be created inside the folder instead of opening it.

IMHO the best translation for the act of "entering/browsing a directory/folder" would be "Entrar no diretório" that means to "Go into the directory".

This words "Inserir diretório" must be changed, this expression is only valid when you are CREATING a sub directory not when you are just browsing it.

The correct translation for this item is "Entrar no diretório"

I forgot to mention: the problem is just in the pt_BR translation.
I am Brazilian and got disappointed to see that incorrect translation item.
I just checked there and the Portuguese pt_PT is correct ("Entrar na pasta")

I suggest that who cares about the pt_BR translation makes ONLY THIS ITEM the same as in the pt_PT translation:

enter the directory = "Entrar na pasta"

Thanks, I've fixed the string in the repository.

Please have a look at if you want to help out with the translation. You can use a tool like gettext to translate the language file. Afterwards, please mail me the translated .po file.
