Why? In the pt case, I understand part of the problem is that separate
translations has meant separate vocabularies for computer terms, and
nothing that has been said here leads me to believe that the rulesets
have defined whether "log out" should be translated "Terminar sessão"
or "Encerrar sessão"*. For some groups, that almost certainly will be
a breaking point, even if the spelling is unified.

Anything not wildly generalized is useless to most people. I'm pretty
sure that no subdialect of en-US will be a better fit then en-US to my
idiolect, or the style guidelines of any particular company one might
have to write for.
