Maybe it works in your english codebase, but I'd be very hesitant about rolling it out everywhere. For example, Perl 6 supports unicode in identifiers so it's perfectly valid to write your code in Japanese. Another increasingly common example I've seen in python is the use of emoji in command line tools.

Raku/Perl6 also has non-ASCII Unicode operators (they all have multicharacter ASCII aliases, but the Unicode characters are usually more readable.)
