Welcome, and thanks.

There were two people interested in creating a translation for Brazilian 
Portugese in the recent weeks. I havent heard back yet.

This has come up with a few languages, but the only explanation I can see is 
that it might be input locale related or system related in some way as I can 
type those characters just fine (I'm using a Swiss French keyboard on a 
laptop, with British English default in KDE).

This might relate to the above. If you feel like compiling Scribus you can use 
the --enable-debug option on configure to get some more information where the 
crash is occurring.

We do. You have to have Colour Management compiled in, setup and activated for 
it to be available.

> Support to Portuguese interface ;

As above.

> Use OpenOffice dictionary to check spelling;

Could do, though there are more universal ones though, certainly in the form 
of libraries.

> Integration with InkScape.

We work closely with the Inkscape team, we will see what comes of this more in 
the future. 

> Sorry my worst and wrong english.

No.. its fine. :)
