Help us Organize

Since 2008, FUEL has been working with different language communities to provide standard linguistic resources to localizers. These resources include terminologies, style guides, rendering system and assessment methods. Initiated by Red Hat, FUEL has grown into a larger effort. Resources created by FUEL are now used by several language communities, organizations, companies, tools, and pieces of software. In 2013, the Government of Maharashtra, India chose FUEL for its e-Governance standard. C-DAC GIST cited FUEL in its Localization Guidelines for term consistency in the context of Indian Languages. FUEL is cited as a reference standard in 'Best Practices for Localization of e-Gov Applications in India. The collaboration with Wikimedia Foundation has given FUEL a broader visibility, and FUEL is now contributed to approximately 60 languages.
