You mean "Regional Settings / Language", right? I have already configured that to the desired language.

There must be another way, because AFAICT KWin uses the same mechanism as other applications that provide a "Switch Application Language" menu (in the KXmlGui framework I think).
I'm not running a Plasma5 session, but have my KF5 stuff installed into /opt/local from which I run it under a Plasma4 session on Linux, and on Mac. On both platforms most applications follow the "global" setting, or at least the per-app setting (stored in ~/.config/klanguageoverridesrc) but some are broken for reasons I haven't yet been able to fathom. KDevelop is, for instance, as is KWin (though there I cannot affirm that it won't respect the per-app setting, of course).
I'm convinced that all those applications share the reason why they stick to en_US ... and I'd be curious to know if they act the same when running in another non-KDE DE.
