How do people explain the FOIL rule of algebra in other languages?

The FOIL rule says if you multiply binomials (A + B)(C + D) you get the First (AC) plus the Outside (AD) plus the Inside (BC) plus the Last (BD) to get AC + AD + BC + BD
So the letters, F, O, I, L spell a word. What's that word in other languages?
