It's easy to switch to English on Unix, even temporarily, but I must
admit that I don't know how to do that on Windows.  I know that it's
possible.  A friend of mine is permanently switching between German,
English, and Chinese on Windows.  Maybe I have to ask him and post the
instructions here.

On Unix:

  LANG=en_US some_program ...

Error messages in German, Russian, or Portuguese are not helpful at
all in the context of international mailing lists.

I doubt.  What I expect is that it crashes somewhere else.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
