Google translate has met some difficulties here ;) .

Here is a slightly more faithful translation of the text in Portuguese

Quote
(Ainda sem sinal do AngoSat-1, cuja avaliação final foi marcada para este mês de Abril, Angola e Rússia já estão a negociar a criação de um novo satélite - o AngoSat-2 -, processo que deverá acabar no final de Maio )
Quote
Still with no signal from Angosat-1, whose final evaluation was scheduled for this month of April, Angola and Russia are already negotiating the creation of a new satellite - Angosat-2 - this negociation shall end by end May
Also TASS had yesterday a news item on Angosat-2: http://tass.ru/kosmos/5128142
