This is the current written example:
If I don't get home 'til 3am, my parents will literally kill me!
Se eu não chegar em casa até as 3 da manhã, meus pais vão literalmente me matar!
The Portuguese translation is either stilted or Brazilian as I'm Portuguese and it's wrong.
Se eu não chegar A casa (not 'em').
OS meus pais (not just 'meus pais')
vão literalmente matar-me (I may be mistaken here but the pronoun is rarely before the word).
Hope this is helpful.

    thanks for your contribution, but in Brazilian Portuguese the translation is perfect.
