Yes, they are.

That's not true. You can set your preferred/enforced language in there.

Which is exactly what X2Go Client does, or isn't it?

Not doing this optional suggestion, though.

I generally set my location to Germany and the language to US English. That's
working like a charm for every application I have met so far, including X2Go Client.
