??? - Wired !!!

As 'root' install the Package 'locales' and ignore debconf because 
it has a bug. If installed call 'dpkg-reconfigure locales' and 
select your desired locales. 

Logout and edit as user your ~/.bash_profile. I have for example:

export LC_MESSAGES=de_DE@euro
export LANGUAGE=de_DE@euro
export LANG=de_DE@euro

Put the same in the users ~/.Xsession.

If you like to automate it, install as root the Package 'language-env'
and as user call it with 'set-language-env' and follow the instructions.
