Removing languages from the Language & Text preference pane didn't help... appleid.apple.com had a setting for a preferred language, but it didn't affect App Store or the iTunes Store on OS X. –  ؘؘؘ Apr 16 '12 at 13:30

As far as I know, the language of the AppStore App is always determined by the country in which your account was registered. The AppStore app is basically just a webview which means that the localization is done by the server and not your mac, in order to change the language to english you'll have to create an english account. You could also change the region of your account in the account settings, but that would make it impossible to use a foreign credit card. There's also a thread on Apple's Support Communities Board about this: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3797598?start=0&tstart=0
