Another way is to create a file called Renviron.site with the following single line:

LANGUAGE=en

and put it in your ...\R\rw2011\etc folder. In your case,

echo LANGUAGE=en > c:\R\rw2011\etc\Renviron.site

would do it. This would result in R being in English not only if you (1) used the shortcut but also if you (2) used the command line to start R or if you (3) used Start > Programs > R >, rw2011 .
