ABBYY FineReader 6.0 Sprint installs Italian version

I recently got a Epson GT-S50 document scanner–the $150 coupon offer was too hard to resist. I am working my way through the software jungle, and encountered a few snags. For instance, ABBYY FineReader 6.0 accompanies the scanner. I installed with wine 1.1.24 on my AMD64 box, and it showed up just fine in my Application Launcher Menu. Upon starting it, however, I noted that all the menu entries were in Italian. Odd. I am certain I selected US English during the install.

I puzzled out a few of the menu commands, and was surprised that the program did a pretty good job on .pnm and .tiff scanfiles that the S50 created. [No .pdf though; a disappointment.]

Any thoughts on how to correct this situation? The install process offers about 10 languages; I can try them all, see what transpires.

As for consulting the Help files, forget it: they display in Dutch!

Appreciate any ideas.
