"FUEL (Frequently Used Entries for Localization) aims to solve the 
problem of inconsistency and lack of standardization in computer 
software translation in a new and unique way. Initiated by Red Hat, the 
project is trying to give a better experience to end users of a 
localized desktop by resolving the issues of standardization and 

"FUEL is an attempt to standardize terms for the whole desktop instead 
of concentrating on different applications separately. At present, FUEL 
incorporates representative entries from the GNOME desktop, 
OpenOffice.org, Firefox browser, Evolution email client, and Pidgin 
instant messenger, so that it can have at least all the entries that a 
normal user uses very frequently. Later, on demand from communities, 
FUEL can incorporate more applications in its list from different projects."
