It struck me as I read this request for assistance that it would be
good to create a file of all basic XO terminology on Pootle. This
would not be used in any individual software code, but would allow
people to find out how we say "computer" or "keyboard" or "screen
rotate button" or "keyboard switching key" in a uniform manner. We
would not be able to draw on this file directly in software, because
in languages other than English these terms would be inflected or have
gender or other attributes.
