How about the APIs in Java (or standard library for any programming
language). The API names are quite descriptive - and it's English, and
it can be huge, think of thousands classes in J2EE, and its member
function names. They are impossible to represent in ideograms. You can
provide your identifier names in Unicode, how about the already
present/shipped ones?


Thanks!
