Match made in heaven

The term "Match made ​​in heaven" was translated into Portuguese, a class "online" as "a perfect match". Have a translator over the Internet, means "game in the sky." I feel very different. Reminds me up American movie title when translated into Portuguese: nothing there.

    A "match made in Heaven" is a phrase that means a "perfect match." It is similar to saying, "That man and that woman are a perfect match, because God (in Heaven) made their match."

    The online translator took another word for "heaven" (sky) and another meaning of the word "match" (a game, as in "tennis match" or "soccer match") and put them together. But the translator chose the wrong meanings for the words. The correct translation is "perfect match."
