I want QGIS interface in English in order to share the information with the GIS community. Using other language than English when chating with the GIS community is very difficulte. When I installed QGIS, it automatically set the language to French. Very frustrating to not have the opportunity to select my own language. I am using Windows XP in French but want Quantum GIS in English.

Thanks in advance! Doum

Sure, just go to the options dialog:

Préférences->Options->Langue (Settings->Options->Locale)

Check Forcer la nationalité du système (Override system locale) and set you language in there.
