Do read the administration manual (on the help menu, via HTML help).
Or, from the rw-FAQ in R-2.2.0-beta
3.2 I want R in English (and not in French/Chinese/...)!
The default behaviour of R is to try to run in the language you run
Windows in. Apparently some users want Windows in their native
language, but not R. To do so, set `LANGUAGE=en' as discussed in Q2.2
You have not even told us what locale you are in, but I would be suprised
if this was Portugal and not Brazil.
