That IS for American English.  Graeme wants to change to another
language, but did not specify which one.


You need to change the en_US part to whatever language you need to
support.  If it is British English this would be en_GB, for French
(France) it is fr_FR

There are many more languages that are supported.  However, do not
remove the .UTF-8 portion unless you are working with a multi-byte
language like Japanese.
