    I'm getting started with Unity now, and I think this question is pretty dumb but, anyway haha...
    My main language is Portuguese, so I'm writing my code in Portuguese. I use some symbols like ~,^,ç, and stuff like that in my classes, variables and so on. Will some different computers have difficulty on reading symbols like that in a code?

    I wouldn't expect so. Your source files should be stored in UTF-8 format, which will be readable on any modern computer.

    Computer will be fine. Its other humans you will need to consider, including your future self.

    Make the code as friendly to future you as possible.

    No, but there can be a problem with the language code file missing on a computer and the symbols not being rendered properly but that's just a rendering problem. Nothing else will be affected. Older OSes (eg Windows XP) didn't come with unusual languages for their region by default but the newer ones (eg Windows 10) come with them now.
