We also have a list of proper translations of “free software” into various languages.
What is free software?

You can see the wrong Japanese translations of “Free” in F-Droid app v1.9. The mistakes will be fixed v1.10, but possibly reverted someday because the term “Free Software” is not so famous.

Great idea! If you can export the FSF glossary, then Weblate supports importing them. https://docs.weblate.org/en/latest/user/translating.html#glossary
