why not simply setting it back again to your wanted language ;? 
Something like "LANG=FR_fr", and in the Wiki you can write something 
To set your language back to your own language, do not forget to set 
the LANG variable to your language via "LANG=TLD_tld.
or something like that ... ;)

It depends: For devs and/or QA it may be better to get the messages 
in English. For an normal user it would mean to do one addtional 
step ... ;)
