Sistema Internacional de Unidades (International System of Units), by Guilherme de Almeida
This is a very important book for any translator working into European Portuguese and with a business or an interest in technical translation. Apart from explaining the different units of measures, it details the International System of Units by listing in a very simple but comprehensive way the most used units, their names and symbols. It also includes standards on spaces between figures and symbols, writing rules for large numbers, brief glossaries, math symbols, etc.
