Hello friends

I wonder if someone can help me out, since maybe this relates to programming/developing. I am not sure if this is the right group, but here it goes.

I am translating the Help files for the Portuguese (PT) version of LibreOffice, and I noticed we can't sort alphabetically some pages with function lists.
For a short example, the "Spreadsheet Functions" Help page shows in the English version the following natural order:
ADDRESS
AREAS
DDE
ERRORTYPE
INDEX
INDIRECT
...

While the Portuguese version reads after translation:
ENDEREÇO
ÁREAS
DDE
TIPO.ERRO
ÍNDICE
INDIRETO
...

Obvisously, the intended presentation should be a natural alphabetical order, as follows:
ÁREAS
DDE
ENDEREÇO
ÍNDICE
INDIRETO
TIPO.ERRO
...

Now my question: how can we achieve this natural order?
Should I change anything in the <bookmarks_value> tags?
There is one potential problem in the Portuguese language, because unlike in English, it reverts expressions like "ABS function" to "Função ABS" - I don't know how far this might be relevant.

Is it something to do with some internal xml tags, such as name"..." or <node...>, etc?

Do you know how can I force the Help page to display everything in the proper alphabetical order in my language?
Should I reorder the whole lines in the relevant PO file? I am afraid to do that, since I might break the build. Smile

Thanks a lot in advance for any expert help.
