It is not. The input-output encoding of C locale is plain ASCII, so any non-
ASCII encodings are going to cause garbage. Hence the problem with file
names that you see (they are probably stored as UTF-8 in the file system).
The correct way to change a language through environment variable for an
ordinary Gettext-based program is through LANGUAGE. This takes only the
language code, not the full locale name. E.g. LANGUAGE=en_US.
KDE programs however respect LANGUAGE only if the language has not been set
through System Settings. If it was, then one has to use KDE_LANG variable
