Here is my problem: I don't like being shouted at. The very first
reaction is to not reply and just delete this mail.

Please learn some basic manners.

I'm not impressed to see a mail to developers list which actually is
supposed to be written to users list or, rather, not be written at
all, because Google already has the answer you need.


And the easiest way is just to delete translation file inside
C:\Program Files\GIMP\.

I do believe that GIMP for Windows is also shipped with a tiny
standalone utility for switching languages.

Also, it's quite strange that you cannot configure your Windows system
(it is Windows system, is it? - see, you didn't even tell us) to use
English. This is fairly easy to do.
