Lightroom Classic 9.1: Language mess

I did a first install of Lr to a pretty fresh Win 7 (Eng).

All my stuff is set to English except my keyboard (Dutch, Flemish).

(1) When starting up Lr it was in Dutch while the Preference was set to English already...
This was easily fixed by switching languages back & forth. Or so it seemed...

(2) I still have parts that keep showing in Dutch. Some I could probably rename, some not?

Would it be fixed if I reinstall with an English keyboard setting, and then switch back to Dutch?
Any even easier methods?

Some mixed language examples ...

Could you please check the language set in the Creative Cloud app by following the instructions?

If it's English, could you please uninstall and install Lightroom Classic?

Update: you should have the language that you need in the CC app. 

Thanks,
Sunil

It's on English like I do with everything. All other Adobe apps I use installed correctly.
I still use CC app 4.5.5.338 which I'm not gonna update until I have no choice.
I think it makes sense to try my own proposition? If not, I'll live with it for now...
Thanks for your reply :)

I changed keyboard and (OS) Region and Language > Location to U.S., reinstalled, and it still does it... Maybe because I didn't change Formats.  I hope it's not basing this on my actual address...

I have seen this too. If you create a catalog while Lightroom is in Dutch, then the default smart collections remain in Dutch if you switch to English afterwards. You can simply rename them however. Just right-click on them.

Thanks. You gave me the idea to start a new catalog while everything is in English and that worked.

The bug for Adobe seems to remain that Lr *did* initially start up with Prefs > English (and in the CC app), yet was displaying Dutch everywhere...
