No there is no need to sort sections individually - merely strip all blank lines and all lines start with a hash - here are a few small samples (each is a separate *.dict file):
o copo de vinho|glass of wine
o copo|glass or cup
## 11 - 19
and even ...
# DO NOT SORT!
# the time
# the day
a madrugada|early morning
o meio dia|midday
a meia noite|midnight
# days of week
o fim-de-semana (os fims-de-samana)|week-end
# Months of the year
o mês (os meses)|month

They are kinda in markdown format so I could print each out individually without doing any sorting - but also enjoy benefit of having a "big database" of words to do word-tests, a personal dictionary, and cool stuff like that...
If I want "sub-section" sorting as you suggest I will just break them out into separate files (I guess) ...
