I have just downloaded QGIS 3.4.15-Madeira on my Mac (Mojave 10.14.6) which local settings include French. The interface language is however American English.

I went to settings and unticked "override system locale" and restarted QGIS, but it does not solve the issue. English remain the default interface language.
