Here is the final output posted in Quora.

With slight customization, it was possible to substitute Jenkins and bytes with English words in Hindi translation.

Custom Terminology file content is as follows

en,hi
Jenkins,Jenkins
Bytes,Bytes
bytes,bytes

This is a case sensitive file. What it says is when we encounter a word (Jenkins or bytes) in the source language (en) it will replace the same with the given value (Jenkins or bytes) in the target (hi) language.

Just to see the difference of this with Google’s translate in the browser, I translated the same. Here is the output.

Google had a different translation for “bother”. I guess it does more than just translation given amount of data it has related to location and language.
