The same applies for Portuguese. See for example this discussion:

Not only there are different words used for masculine/feminine, but also, for
different variants of Portuguese, e.g. pt-PT and pt-BR.

Currently, the pt-BR/masculine word "Usuário" is used, but this situation is
far from ideal, since it is not adequate for pt-PT, pt-AO, pt-... users and for
female users neither.
