So, it occurs to me that translating all the text in the table to English is
going to be a headache.  I think as long as the table headers and the
section names have title="" stuffs, that's cool.  Here's a patch to you
index.pt_BR.html file that shows what I was talking about in my suggestion.
 Use it if you wish, but don't feel compelled to do so.

Note that you populate the table in the say way as your patch allows, but
I've added classes for status states ("bad", "medium", and "good").
