Not sure it will work or it's the way you want it. But you can try changing the system locale to English (US) or English (United Kingdom).

Go to Control Panel, Regional Options, and under the General tab, Your locale, select the appropriate English locale from the drop down list, and click OK. You may have to restart for the changes to take effect.

I know that with an English version of Windows, after changing the system locale to another supported language, there are still limitations in display of languages in dialogue boxes and so on. There are things that won't change. It may be easier the other way round.

Another thing is, changing the system locale may apply across the board to all user accounts. Not sure but that's what I think. Try it and see.
