How to set NetBeans locale to English

My Windows OS has Japanese language as its default locale. However, I am still having troubles understanding Japanese anyway lol. When I try to install JDK+NetBeans, by defaults it will start with the default locale of my system --that is Japanese. After googling here and there, finally found the way to run the NetBeans in English:

Execute the NetBeans with startup parameter --locale:
netbeans --locale en


Edit the configuration files (usually in \etc\netbeans.conf), find the entry started with netbeans_default_options="..." and insert the locale parameter to it:
netbeans_default_options="--locale en ..."


That's all :)
