This document describes the development of a surface realisation component for the Portu- guese language that takes advantage of the data and evaluation tools provided by the REG-2008 team. At this initial stage, our work uses simple n-gram statistics to produce descriptions in the Furniture domain, with lit- tle or no linguistic variation. Preliminary re- sults suggest that, unlike the generation of English descriptions, contextual information may be required to account for Portuguese word order.
