This paper summarizes the work that has been done concerning the Portuguese language in the scope of the ALERT project during its first year. The media watch system that is the goal of this project comprises many different modules, some of them common among the three languages of the project. This paper concentrates on the definition and collection of the necessary linguistic resources for Portuguese, and the development of the speech recognition, topic and jingle detection modules. The first version of the ALERT demo for European Portuguese is also described.
