Is it possible to force locale to english in splunk 6.2 instead of using browser locale ?



Since upgrading to 6.2, Splunk tries to use my browser local and switch to my locale (French).
I understand it can be convenient and a good thing for some users but this is more convenient to me to use English for Splunk as all the docs, training and support site use English terms so I would like to switch back my user to English, especially for admin tasks.

I didn't find any easy way to change it when clicking on My user -> edit account in the splunk bar.

Only workaround I found are :
- changing fr-FR to en-US in the url (but sometimes, it reswitch back, I don't know why)
- Move up en-US in my browser options but obviously it will affect all my surfing.

Is there any other way to choose a specific locale for a user ?

From the comments in the first post, it seems that it is a missing feature at this time.
BTW, I don't want to modify code and changing the locale for all users.
I find it good to have interface localized for users whishing to be in their main language.
