English language versions of Gimp.
Can someone explain how I can ger an english version of Gimp? When I try to download one the system recognises that my computer has a German IP address and a German OS system and downloads the whole package in German. I live in Germany and speak passable German but it's a teep enough learning curve as it is to get to know gimp, without language issues as well.

Is there:

1: An option to reset the package to English, or

2: A way to persuade the download mirror that despite a German OS, I'd like to work in English where possible?

Thanks in advance for any help...

If using Windows, the usual Windows installers (http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/stable.html) are multilingual, only the help files are language specific but they are downloadable separately. See http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/faq.html

Many thanks Ofnuts. I think the problem was that I made the download on a German version of Win7. A few minutes ago I finally worked out the solution- reinstall, use the 'advanced' install, and tell it not to install translation: it defaulted to English and I'm happy...
