OSX Change program language of GIMP

billlee
Hello, I want to use GIMP in English. I'm using Mac OS 10.11.6 (15G1611) El
Capitan.

I've just downloaded GIMP. I'm in Thailand but I downloaded Gimp with a VPN
pretending I'm in the UK.

And as soon as it loads you can see there's an issue with language.

Please see attachment.

I have combed the internet for solutions.

This doesn't work
http://www.ekenberg.se/blog/change-gimp-interface-language-on-mac/
tried this in contents/MacOS/GIMP:
echo "Launching GIMP..."
export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
$EXEC "$bundle_contents/MacOS/$name-bin" "$@" $EXTRA_ARGS

tried everything here
http://www.gimpusers.com/forums/gimp-user/18561-choice-of-language
edited gimprc – still doesn't work

even changing language in preferences and guessing the English choices doesn't
work.

Please does someone know another solution.

I want to make a course about how to make money selling tshirt designs on
Amazon. I would like to empower people to do this and I don't want them to spend
money on Photoshop (anyway they won't because they couldn't afford it). So I'm
really keen to get GIMP to work.

GIMP uses the system language on bootup. Once you've started GIMP, go to
the preferences, and change the language from System to English.

Please see the attached screenshot and you'll see why that isn't an option. And
I've tried.

That's not a different language, it's English with different characters.
Has been reported a few times, but the majority of users seems to not be
hit by this issue.

Well, have you tried some other builds like mine for example to see if the
problem persists?

Could you give me a link to any of the other builds? as I'm still getting this
issue. :)
