Wonderful hope but not sure to catch what you term "shortcut". I tried to add this command in C:\R\rw2011\etc\Rprofile, the .Rprofile in the folder my documents, but this cannot be understood from there... which obviously shows that "shortcut" is not a general term for profiles! I have also unsuccessfully looked for a file "shortcut" in the rw2011 folder. I also tried and went through the R-help archive. There were some exchanges on this subject and Asian languages some weeks ago but what I have tried and adapt on this basis did not work.

The objective would be to have R in English (thus additionnally allowing MDI mode with R-WinEdt, which is not the case with any other language) and to keep Windows XP and other applications in the foreign (= French, here) language.

Thanks for any further hint,
