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...

Where are you downloading from (URL) and for what operating system?

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...
