How to refer a locale to idea insted of the os locale?


You need to set the "user.country" and "user.language" system properties in the idea.exe.vmoptions file (windows) or the info.plist file (Mac) (in the {IDEA-install}/bin directory):


Use the language (ll) and country (CC) code you want IDEA to use. You can also take a look at this thread () in which this issue was recently discussed.
