Pau, what do you think? My gut says we need to have the buttons match pretty precisely if we're sending users instructions via a guided tour. 

Using the same exact label would be my preferred option since it causes the less problems (there is no doubt what the text is referring to). 

The "beta" part can be understood a as an additional marker (as if it say "new" as Google products used to). It is likely that users can identify this option just by referring to it as "Edit", but considering that there is another "Edit" button next to it, making it obvious may save users some seconds of doubt.

As promised,[1] today we deployed a guided tour that shows new users how to make their first edit using VisualEditor. This tour is a complement to the similar one we created, which shows users how to use the basic functions of the wikitext editor. 

And if you want to try any destructive experiments, feel free to trash any pages in the beta enwiki, for example
