I am not sure how generally this works but I was able to get it to switch back and forth between two languages within a single R session like this:

> Sys.getenv("LANGUAGE")

LANGUAGE
      ""
> q() # note English prompt; c means continue rather than exiting
Save workspace image? [y/n/c]: c

> Sys.putenv(LANGUAGE="it")
> q() # note Italian prompt

Salva area di lavoro? [y/n/c]: c
> Sys.putenv(LANGUAGE="en")
> q() # now we are back to English

Save workspace image? [y/n/c]: n
