I think you'd just have to choose which label to use. Correctly matching
key names with the keyboard model is hardly impossible. I would say
you'd just have to choose whether to use Inserir or Insert, and stick to
that choice. Which strings you would choose would be completely up to
you, but you could of course take popularity and other factors into account.
