1https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margarine#National_standards Looks like that is the case - the Wikipedia article doesn't note any different terms per country other than the very rare usage of "oleo" in the US... generally limited to crossword puzzles. – Catija – 2016-04-06T18:52:46.303

Moreover, it is used in the same meaning in some other languages because it originated from Greek margaron. – V.V. – 2016-04-07T06:03:32.203
