That's one of the main reasons why we don't call them 4 F's, but
rather "4 Foundations."  The foundations are core values, not
marketing slogans.  I wrote up a page to explain them here:

Obviously we knew that translations would change these foundations so
they wouldn't be alliterated.  That's OK -- it's the *value* that's
important, not the word itself.  As long as a translation is matching
the value of the foundation itself, it's a good choice.  The icons
help to make this distinction as well -- they make a link between the
idea behind the word, and the words used in every other language.
