Business as usual on Windows systems where there is no true localisation 
because the translations are mostly found in the program's resources (i.e. 
attached to the program files at linktime) and not in language catalogs...

You can set global environment variables through the system settings dialog of 
Windows. Setting the localization variables (LANG, LC_ALL etc) to the desired 
locale(s) should do the trick.
