One posts suggested that fr_FR would be on the lists for both America
and Asia.  Portuguese is spoken on four continents, and I think the
Brazilian Portuguese translations are sufficiently complete that many
other Portuguese speakers would prefer them over English.  Continents
don't really seem to map very well to the language preferences of the
people who live there. :)
