In French I did use for the interface and the manual "Composer" 
[compose/set] and "Composition" [composition-composing of-setting], and 
also "compiler" in the manual, explaining that in this case "compiler" 
and "composer" are the same. But of course, there is no explanation for 
the interface.

In TeXnicCenter they are using "Build".
