The English to Portuguese thesaurus provides alphabetic indexing of 9,500 English glosses along with their respective Portuguese glosses, helping Deaf Brazilians use LIBRAS to read English, and helping English readers locate any given Brazilian sign, even if they do not know Portuguese words. Thus, the Brazilian Sign Language Dictionary is useful to international Sign Language linguists, who may wish to study Brazilian Sign Language.

Semantic Index
The semantic index provides thematic categories, and the semantic content distributes all Brazililan signs in them, helping readers locate semantically related signs and improve sign learning, comprehension and use.
