My phone is running in English, but all my Android apps show up in Dutch. This is very strange, because I never told anything like this to the phone. Actually even on the web for instance for Facebook/Twitter I use English.

Is there a way I can adjust the language of the Android runtime?

That's really strange. Are you only using the Yandex store?

@Welsinki It's actually more strange now. Rebooted the phone and now it's in English. I guess somehow the Android Runtime is looking at my operator or so

Same problem, Android apps language changed from French to German. Apps installed from 1Mobile Market that is also now in German (was in English).

I can confirm the bug: after inserting German sim card, all android apps changed to German, setting to system language back and forth to English and rebooting helps to restore proper world order

I can tell you it's annoyingly taking the language configured at the operator, because I know they have the wrong one setup for me, which is the one in which the Android apps appear.
