What guidance does any have on building multilingual service forms? Can you share any experiences? Would you need to have separate instances to support Portuguese vs. English?

The framework (everything but SevriceForms) is supported in multi language. The forms are what you build and nS does not know it exists, hence it is not translated by them. 

You can build a service in english, create an exact replica and translate it into another language. Then via ordering permissions you can make the english service visible to english speaking people, etc...

The other option you have is to change the labels via onload scripts if you can detect the users language, since this

Ant

Hi Darwin, we've commenced planning on this and have benefited from a catch up with newScale and another customer on the best approach.

We've found that a core prerequisite is being able to divide your customer Org Units out by their language so they only see their respective catalogues; there are risks associated with that too.

This would mean you'd probably need to pick up a language preference/locale from their session and add it to the Org Unit; as well as picking it up in the Locale ID p
