What's the whole point of this thread? None of us invented the term, nobody forces you to use it.
"Data encapsulation", "inheritance" etc. are keywords bound to specific concepts of OOP. When you use them, people know right away what you mean (hopefully). But if you don't like them, don't use them. It's that simple.

The point is he doesn't know the answer and wants to understand why.
Most languages, APIs, SDKs, and the like are written or designed by English speaking people. English is the language of programming. That's how it is.
Encapsulation describes something that has nothing to do with accessibility so I don't know why you picked those terms.
