Do all computer programs use english letters in their programming?

Programming Languages are anyway artificial languages, wherein the need to restrict the "vocabulary" to the minimum and only to those symbols that translate into actionable statements is a must- this being the greatest limitation- there is NO great "achievement" involved in "translating" the verbs or symbology[which are relationship symbols from Math] to another Natural Languge. It simply doesn't make sense. If at all anything, I have seen Computer Programs' User Interfaces in various Natural languages. The real breakthrough will happen only when Natural Languages per se or any particular NL is directly used as a PL without any or as many restrictions as there are now, as to the vocabulary or semantic units usable.
