I suggest to try it first and check if the translation matches your
expectation before making it permanent by adding it to the script.

On GNU/Linux and [Mac]OS[X] the main Ardour executable is a shell script.

On Linux, if you've got Ardour from ardour.org,
/opt/Ardour-5.*/bin/ardour5 or for most Linux distros: /usr/bin/ardour5,
on Mac: /Applications/Ardour5.app/Contents/MacOS/Ardour5

You can add some   `export LANG=XXXX` there.

On Windows it's a bit more work: You have to create a .bat wrapper or
edit the start-menu shortcut and set the variable there.
