As I wrote before:
$ LC_MESSAGES=de_DE kwrite
opens a full German session of kwrite, and my system since then is full German now, as I moved away from having LC_MESSAGES set to 'C'.
Still not happy with it and I believe it is a bug that KDE cannot decide which language to use.
Actually Inkscape (being a Gnome product) since then is German too, so I guess that respecting LC_MESSAGES for menus and stuff is the intended behaviour.
I might ask on kde-devel or look for a bug report to bring this to KDE's attention.
