Well I'm not sure why it doesn't work for you, another method you could try
(besides removing your language folder which is a bit "brute force") is to
export the Lang variable globally, something like this:

set LANG=us_EN.UTF-8
start MonoDevelop.exe

This will work for sure!
It seems also that Monodevelop "remembers" the last language used, since I
don't have to launch this bat file every time, I just run the exe and I get
the english interface

Best regards
