Nadim .. you seem to emphasize on the cons. of using the 'Arabization' term
:-) I don't share you with your feels, as Arabeyes Work did prove that it is
not a Translation project .. and that the name we use to point ti Arabeyes in
Arabic is "Fareeq al tatweer wa al ta3reeb" and that will be in every ACE
Besides, the contributors acknowledged will not be only translators ..
Amman - Jordan
Think Linux + Think Arabic = Think www.arabeyes.org
