Assuming you have an en_US locale :)

I have recently discovered that en_US could be a UTF-8 locale or it
could be an ISO-8859-1 locale, which you get is machine specific. One
can usually make an explicit choice by using either en_US.ISO-8859-1
or en_US.UTF-8.

Setting LANG affects more than the messages, it also affects way
working copy paths are intrepreted, if you just want to control the
messages then

    $ export LC_MESSAGES=C

is what you want.
