I think that most languages that use the Latin alphabet, follow the rule
for all IT related acronyms should always ...
(a) Be kept in the original English language as in most of the technical
published literature, acronyms are written in uppercase.
(b) The word BASIC is a good example. It is the name of a programming
language and stands for *B*eginners *A*ll-purpose *S*tandard *I*nstruction
(c) If one saves the translation as BASIC it also causes the extra
frustration, that it is flagged as "Unchanged", which means that you have
to reset it and then save it. This applies to all acronyms.
(d) Another issue why BASIC, in particular, is an important example: BASIC
= programming language and basic (lowercase) means "not complicated".  See
the ambiguity?
