Hello,

I have downloaded the upp nightly build and use it on Windows10.
There are a lot of improvements over the current stable Version and I like it.
My locale is german language and so I get german warnings and errors from the MSVC17 C++ compiler in the message window.
I would prefer english messages. Is this possible?

Edit: I found an answer by extensive googling:

Set the Environmentvariable VSLANG = 1033
restart TheIDE

Alternatively, you can delete german language from the VS installer.

Frankly, this idea of translating texts intended for developers is stupid...

Yes it is.
There are probably marketing reasons for it.
Why does windows have a POSIX API that nobody uses?
Otherwise US goverment could not buy it because it is required by regulations.

The same could be true for translations.
