Is it possible to select a different language for a specific application? On some systems I run Fedora15/Gnome in German, but want to use the Terminal in English including for the simple prompt questions like: Y/N instead of j/N = Ja/Nein etc.
You can launch any program with a different language by setting the
LC_MESSAGES environment variable (or
LANG to include other regional settings besides display language such as sort order, number and date formatting, etc).
$ LANG=en_US gnome-terminal
Keep in mind that anything you launch FROM that terminal will inherit the language. If you specifically want a program to run with your you could start it up with:
$ LANG=de_DE program_to_run_in_german
