You can use the AppLocale util provided by Microsoft to run legacy applications without changing language of non-Unicode applications (system locale):

You can have what to need with this:

  • Create a new local user.
  • Log in with that user and change the Windows language of that account to which you needs.
  • Log out
  • Log in with your usual user.
  • Run the application you want to see in a different language with the "Run As" method.
