although i'm not a "non-English software engineer", my english-russian 
computer dictionary gives the russian equivalent of "queue" as the standard 
word for "queue, line (for waiting in)" [ochered'], and "queu(e)ing" as 
"organization of queues" [organizacija ocheredej].  the russian term for 
stack is the english word (spelled in russian: stek), but also the word for 
store (as in department store) [magazin].
