Ubuntu – How to change language of a specific application


Is it possible to change the language of a particular application so that when opened it shows in Spanish for example while the rest are in English?

I have Spanish and English installed in Ubuntu and am using English as the default one but I would like a way to change the language for a particular application without having to change the whole language of the system.

Best Answer

In one line:

LANGUAGE=es_ES gedit

(please notice I am using Linux Manjaro, in this case the variable is called LANGUAGE)
