[R] set the language

I would like to change my R language from German to French or English.

I have read messages in the archives and also R Installation and Administration paragraph 7.2 but I did not get it all. I have to set LANGUAGE=en (what would it be for French, "fr" ?), but I don't know where.

I am under Windows XP. FAQ 2.15 tells me : "under Windows 2000/XP/2003 you can use `System' in the control panel or the properties of `My Computer' (under the `Advanced' tab)". Is that right ? I have problem finding all this, partly because my Windows is in German.

I give you the German names I have found : Systemsteuerung --> System --> Umgebungsvariablen
Should I click on "Neu" ("Neu Benutzervariable") and then enter "LANGUAGE" as "Name" and "en" as "Wert" ?
Maybe I am completely wrong.

Thank you very much
