You can use the wizard at installation of accounting module but ok.

You are doing two tricky things here:
1. adding a new language manually in spoken_languages
2. using en_US as the new language

spoken_languages allows you to use the *.templates (account, tax,
journals) for the main objects. But to do so, you first need to have a
translations for the templates. So if you add a language, you need to
have .po translations for templates in the db (so having a .po file for
these lang when installing the l10n_* module).

Moreover en_US is considered as the main language of Odoo and often as
no languages. Using it works but it's adding a level of complexity so I
wouldn't advise it for your tests.

I guess because you had no translations for the templates objects in
en_US in your database when generating the accounts.
Otherwise, it would have copied it (skipping when not found).

It works for both modules l10n_be and l10n_ch in the languages the
module was translated.

If now you want to add a language in an existent multilang localisation
(let say add German into l10n_be), you simply need to:
1. add de_DE in spoken_language (here in l10n_be/account_chart_template.yml)
2. create a new de.po file containing German translations of *templates*
object (and put it in l10n_be/i18n_extra/)
3. load these translations into the db (at install or upgrade of the
module or language)
