My Preferred & Primary language is set to English (The region is however set to Germany) as shown in the image below.

When I try to shut down or restart, I am presented a dialog in German language.

I have tried to solve this by running sudo languagesetup in the terminal to set the lang by selecting Use English for the main language then restarting. This had no effect.

Running defaults read NSGlobalDomain AppleLocale in the terminal outputs en_DE

  • Interestingly enough, the shutdown dialog is mixed English and German. Can you please run the following in the command line: "defaults read NSGlobalDomain AppleLocale"(without the quotes) and post the result? – Gummibando Jun 4 '19 at 9:44
  • Results in: en_DE – ksav Jun 4 '19 at 9:46
