plasma-discover: Setting a different language (locales) as default de_DE

Happy new 2023 Debian and openSUSE KDE teams,

This issue is about plasma-discover and locale/language settings and
hope this is not Debian-specific.

I fixed up my plasma-discover and it starts now, again on
Debian/unstable AMD64 with KDE/Plasma version 5.26.5 and fetches
Normally, I do not use plasma-discover for upgrading packages but it's
nice to have graphical frontend to check what is available.

All my swcatalog caches (Debian DEP-11 metadata) were updated via:

root# appstreamcli refresh --force
root# LC_ALL=en_EN LANG=en_EN appstreamcli refresh --force

Now I see:

root# LC_ALL=C ll /var/cache/swcatalog/cache/
total 21M
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4.0K Jan 14 10:59 .
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4.0K Feb 25  2022 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1.3M Jan 14 03:25 de_DE-local-metainfo.xb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 9.7M Jan 14 10:59 de_DE-os-catalog.xb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 998K Jan 14 10:13 en_EN-local-metainfo.xb
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 8.8M Jan 14 10:13 en_EN-os-catalog.xb

(Re)Moved all user's appstream + discover caches before:

user$ mv ~/.cache/appstream ~/.cache/appstream.old
user$ mv ~/.cache/discover ~/.cache/discover.old

Renewed APT packages repository via:

root# apt-get update

As you can see I have both de_DE and en_EN swcatalogs.

If I run from Start > Apps > Discover or from konsole...

user$ plasma-discover

...I always have de_DE software-catalogs visible.

With en_EN locales...

user$ LC_ALL=en_EN LANG=en_EN plasma-discover

...works fine.

Is there a place where I can set locales/language for plasma-discover?

I found:

$ cat ~/.config/discoverrc

Cannot say if this is the correct config file as I have something like
discover (hardware-info) tool also installed.

$ man discover

discover(1)                 General Commands Manual                discover(1)

      discover — hardware detection utility

Thanks for any hints.

Best regards,
