FUEL: An initiative in language standardization via collaboration

http://www.linux.com/feature/149038

"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 inconsistency."

"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."

Hi Rajesh

Nice to see your initiative on indian language customization on Linux. Need your great help for me also in this. I have some commitment on Setting up Hindi,Tamil on the Linux environment. My linux is only Redhat Enterprise Linux AS 4 Update 5 or RHEL 5 Uptate 2.

Kindly let me know, what procedure should i follow, when we connect to the server through commad line shell, and start typing in Hindi or Tamil or any of our indian languages.....

Thanks in Advance
