I don't think that this works, the last paragraph of LANGUAGE
description states:

        Note: The variable LANGUAGE is ignored if the locale is
        set to ā€˜Cā€™. In other words, you have to first enable
        localization, by setting LANG (or LC_ALL) to a value other
        than ā€˜Cā€™, before you can use a language priority list
        through the LANGUAGE variable.
