As a non-native speaker, I find both replacements difficult to understand.
While many of the original comments are easy to grasp for +7 year olds
who were never taught English, but are exposed to modern global ways

If the comments no longer apply, it's better to remove them.

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
