If you are using a bash-like shell

export LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8

And you'll probably want to add that to your ~/.bashrc file.

If you are using a different shell, adjust the syntax to suit.

You may wish to read about the local env vars to see if it is
appropriate for you to set LC_ALL or one of the "lesser" ones based on
your needs.
