I reuse quite a lot of ingame strings in AwesomeGuildStores and even do the "cut off a character at the end" thing (although I am working on getting rid of those). Never had a problem in the past 4 years, but I also wouldn't recommend using strings from the support sections of the game or some that are used in a different context in the vanilla UI.

I'd say texts that are tied into core systems are generally very unlikely to change and as a rule of thumb, the shorter it is, the safer it is to reuse.
