+If your system supports launcher shortcuts then Geany's shortcut can be updated

+As alternative, you can create a shell script in any directory in your `$PATH` to 
+override the default `geany` binary. As example, one can create a file at
+`~/.local/bin/geany` (remember to make it executable):
+	#!/bin/sh
+	export LANGUAGE=en_US
+	exec /usr/bin/geany $@
