How to change language setting of R on Mac

Today's problem..I am using an R base system downloaded from a Japanese mirror site. But I do not need Japanese GUI. Error messages in Japanese are useless for me. But I did not know how to switch back to English.

All I had to is start terminal and

at terminal prompt, type:

[command prompt$] defaults write org.R-project.R force.LANG en_US.UTF-8

It seems I could not change language from R menu. I wonder if there is a way.

Thanks much. This is by far the simplest solution to R's shortcomings.

Thank you so much!!
It was of great help to me.
I am yet to find this solution (to force set working language of R into English different from the one decided by system locale) for Mac in any other website.
