Kubuntu 11.04 and 11.10: how to flexibly change from one system language to another and back?

Hello everybody

There is one other advise I would appreciate before upgrading from Kubuntu 
11.04 to 11.10 For various reasons, I need sometimes to change the language in 
Kubuntu - at the level of a single application or the overall system. Language 
flexibility in a single application (like LibreOffice or Kontact) is no 
problem any more, thanks to some improvements that have come with Kubuntu 
11.04. But the overall system language is still a problem, when changing it: 
various buttons in the K-Menu, Dolphin, Desktop and panel bar keep the 
language in which the system has been installed. Via K-Menu > System Settings 
> Region and language, I do manage to change the system language "under the 
hood". But only some of the buttons appear in the new system language after a 
restart. I have no clue how to quickly adapt all the buttons to a new system 

Thanks for your reply. Respectfully yours,

Bas Roufs.
