Yes, in general this is completely enough to rely on OS locale and for
almost every user this is fine (and saves us from the trouble of
making it configurable).

Yes ;-).
You can use a simple batch file which sets the environment variable
which defines the application's language to English.
As this was requested already some time ago, I wrote such a file,
available at http://www.uvena.de/tmp/geany_english.bat.

P.S.: this is the wrong mailing list, geany-i18n is intended for
translation questions and discussions. But no problem at all.
