comment How to name parts of your program as a non native English speaker
@bleakcabal As I've already written, it is usually no problem to think and code in English. However, this is probably with what I grew up with so it just feels natural to me. It's also not much of a problem when say your requirements are in German and your code is not. I'm a native German speaker, living and coding in Germany. In say a good 15 years, I've never written "German" code (not even comments ;) But I think that also what ANeves wrote is perfectly ok, as long as you and everybody involved in the project are comfortable with it.

comment How to name parts of your program as a non native English speaker
Actually the requirements are usually in English, too. A good deal of projects I've been working on so far are indeed sort of international with companies from all over the world contributing. So the English language is the common ground for all participants. In the cases where everything is in German (except the code) I never came across a case where it wouldn't be possible to think of a English word for say a function or variable or class...
