No, (re)installing/updating X2Go has nothing to do with that.  Even an
already installed version will change its display language once you
change the Region and Language Settings.

It checks the *Region and Language Settings*, because that is how
programs are supposed to select their display language on Windows.
At least according to the spec our developers followed.
If you can point to a technet resource or similarly authoritative
Microsoft site that says another behavior should be the default,
please do.

So set the regional settings accordingly and you are good to go, I
don't see where your problem is?

Also, the bug I referred you to contained a workaround, why aren't you
using that?

I'm a bit irritated that you're picking on X2GoClient for behaving as
expected from Windows applications, also, you should see the same
behavior with *every* application (as long as it follows Microsoft's
spec) you install on your machine, not only X2goClient.
