FUEL is growing only because of the support of volunteer communities world-wide and several well known organizations! The power of the event is the power of collaboration, the power of sharing, the power of volunteerism! Currently, More than 60 language communities are working with the FUEL Project. Since 2008, FUEL Project is consistently working with the different language communities to provide standard linguistic resources eg. Terminologies, style guides, assessment methods etc. to the world.Like last year, please collaborate and cooperate to make the event a huge success!
