According to Ankit, one of the pioneer of Gujarati and Indic localization, “in simple words, it was a great event for Gujarati Localization community and evaluated translations going to play an important role for future localization activities. Hats of to all who participated in the event and spend their precious time and efforts to make Gujarati Localization better through FUEL evaluation workshop!”
The  workshop aimed at the community review and standardization of frequently encountered computing terminologies in Gujarati. FUEL Gujarati Evaluation meet aims at solving the problem of inconsistency and lack of standardization in computer software translations. At this occasion several people and volunteers from different field discussed about the appropriate equivalent on 578 commonly appearing entries under FUEL list coming under popular applications people use in day to day life. Before the Gujarati language FUEL already completed released this list in Hindi, Marathi, Tamil and Maithili languages.
FUEL project is a community project initiated by Red Hat. It is hosted on FedoraHosted.Org. FUEL tries to provide a standardized and consistent computer interface for users. FUEL Gujarati Evaluation meet will be a concrete move towards the problem and after the meet, FUEL will come with the standard translation of entries in Gujarati language.
