so i think you should inside .profile comment out the line:
export LANG=de_DE.UTF-8># uncomment this line for German output -> # export LANG=de_DE.UTF-8># uncomment this line for German output
restart and try if all will be english.
To be honest, shouldn't all of this be selectable by the display manager? If you override the LANG/LC_* variables in a terminal, you would otherwise have to ensure the new application gets started from that terminal, otherwise it'll fall back to the session's defaults.
