Hi, just curios: What is your mother language?
Anyway - if you need to force QCAD to start in a different language you can modify the Shortcut in XP. Check the link for QCAD below the Start menu - make a right click - open the Properties and change the Start parameter with an additional command " -locale en" at the end.
It should looks something like this""C:\QCad\Qcad\qcad.exe -locale en".
Save or make always notes of the previously command to be able to change it back if it doesn't works!
