I find it hysterical that "UPLOAD FILE" translates to "LISA FAIL".
If someone with a foreign language comments on a picture you will get a comment notification in your email in their language. If you open that email, it sets your default language to that language. That's why I just delete GoL notifications without opening them. The site is slow enough where I can just catch up by looking at the "Last Comments" page on the site. For LG I rely on the notifications though because that site is TOO bust (often with stuff I don't care about seeing).
Anyway, Joe's suggestion is your best bet and it should work.
