This doesn't work for me - it still runs in my OS's region language. I'm
pretty keen to use Monodevelop, but having it in a language other than
English is turning into a major headache for me. It would be great if the
dev team could allow us to choose our language. 

Edit : found a crude work around to revert to English. Uninstall GetText
(under Add-in manager > IDE), then look in your MonoDevelop install folder
under /bin/locale ... delete the folder with the language code you want
removed. Now it loads in English. I'm not sure if GetText is needed for
something else, but so far, so good.
