I know about the consistency list. I guess we need to go through
that list, and see how we can add/modify or clear confusions.
The issue I see here, that most of the translation everywhere
are contributed by the same group with the same mistakes.
So we need to review what is there, and arrange with other
groups (Arabeyes) of what we think.
So as you are the one mentioned the consistency list, where
we can start ? ;)
