Not GNOME, but the whole system.
You need to set the environments LANG, LC_ALL, LINGUAS. You can add it
to you .bashrc file (assuming that you use bash)
I'm not sure if this is correct for German, but I would guess:
(for Norwegian it is LC_ALL=no_NO, but for Danish it is LC_ALL=da_DK, so
the LC_ALL might not be de_DE for German)
