US crossties are "sleepers" in Europe (though perhaps not universally)

Definitely not, as most of Europe does not speak English...
Every language has different name for those parts. I guess the names you give as European are British English ones.

From my experience most Europeans speak English - as a second/third/fourth language - better than many folks here in England!
