I think it's really a psychological thing, developed by internet spam 
over the years.
Most (foreign) readers got to know the word "Enlarge" or "Enlarging" by 
their first spam mails, not from school, and "enlarge" and "enlarging" 
are most probably in most peoples black list for their spam filter. The 
first association, the brain makes is the one mentioned in the spam mails.

So the word got a little negative touch. My favorite word is "expand" 
too, but if you want to strengthen the fact that there is nothing bad 
around the word, why not.

 From the translators point of view, both are fine.
