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 
announcement :-)

Besides, the contributors acknowledged will not be only translators ..
