In my translation for pt-BR (2003), I mapped all Excel functions into
Calc functions. At that time I was not able to question if Excel
translation was good or not. What I can tell is that the translation
quality of Excel functions to pt-BR stinks, with accented letters, dots
and absolute lack of uniformity. The decision was to bring the poor
quality into Calc for the sake of interoperability (which is unfortunate).

Not that I am aware of. This may help you

I think this is a decision of your translation team and your community.
My advise is to bring it close to Excel, but improve where you can.
There will be another situation for you already or soon: Some functions
are unique to Calc (AFAIK) and you will be called to give a turkish name
for them! What a responsability!
