Do read the administration manual (on the help menu, via HTML help). Or, from the rw-FAQ in R-2.2.0-beta

3.2 I want R in English (and not in French/Chinese/...)!


The default behaviour of R is to try to run in the language you run Windows in. Apparently some users want Windows in their native language, but not R. To do so, set `LANGUAGE=en' as discussed in Q2.2 and Q2.15.

You have not even told us what locale you are in, but I would be suprised if this was Portugal and not Brazil.
