    Depending on your specific situation, you may want to be setting the LANG environment variable. This can be done with export LANG="en_US.UTF-8" (or whichever language you prefer). You can add this to your ~/.profile or similar if you want it to be set every time you open a login shell. – mareoraft Feb 7 '17 at 22:38
