Where Mozilla is in FUEL:
During the creation of modular list of FUEL, Firefox was taken to represent from the browser side. So through FUEL implementation process, we ensured the quality of localized Firefox. Mozilla is 'GROW'ing and so it needs a defined process-set to examine the quality of Mozilla product whether it is desktop browser, or mobile or even OS.
FUEL aims at solving the Problem of Inconsistency and Lack of standardization in Software Translation across the platform. It works to provide a standardized and consistent look of computer for a language users. FUEL works to create linguistic and technical resources like standardized terminology resources, computer translation style and convention guides, and assessment methodologies.
How your session furthers the MozCamp Goals: Mozilla products are available in c.80 languages. There is lots of things are needed to done on consistency and quality front of localization work. FUEL project resources is used hugely by localization community of different languages in Firefox localizations. So the experience if shared with community working with the localization of different products of Mozilla will give its benefit to more languages and products.
