Did not work at all...

I set the environment variable to "C" and then ran gpg2 -h. Example of

 -s, --sign                 make a signature
     --clearsign            make a clear text signature
 -b, --detach-sign          skapa signatur i en separat fil
 -e, --encrypt              kryptera data

(Both English and Swedish...)
And later:

 -v, --verbose              utf÷rlig
 -n, --dry-run              g÷r inga Sndringar
 -i, --interactive          frsga innan ÷verskrivning
     --openpgp              anvSnd strikt OpenPGP-beteende

Characters used for the Swedish umlauted chars åäöÅÄÖ are completely
