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.

I think so. Coz ive never heard programming language that is based in any other letters. Since its a universal language, of course the letters would be also universal letters.
