How to change GIMP language in Windows

I started using GIMP many years ago since there was no better free graphics editor solution out there.

But every time I install it on my office desktop (Windows XP) I find it difficult to change language.

Now this is the solution: go to My Computer properties (or Control Panel, System), select Advanced Tab, and ADD new environment variable in the second text box:
- Variable name: LANG
- Variable value: en

And you have English Gimp. That's all folks :)
