Easy way if you will never need the other languages - uninstall gimp, then 
install again but choose to customize your install. Then remove check box from 
the Translations. Voila. Alternatives are, find and delete the localizations 
from your Program files/Gimp (not exact location, medium level task) folder or 
teaching your windows to set your LANGUAGE env variable(advanced level task).

You get answered.
