Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

At any given time, half the world is asleep, and half of the remaining half may be at work or otherwise predisposed. Therefore, it's a good idea to wait at least 24hours until re-considering whether or not to edit or add to your thread/question. After 24 hours, if nobody has replied, think about whether there's anything you can add to your question that might make it easier to answer.
In this case, you've given only an hour for someone to answer. Please, be patient!
what is the default language and the default location set in the computer you are using
from your last post it shows you are using a windows computer (xp-sp3)to post here
if the ENGLISH link we posted is going to the German language page then it is because YOU set windows XP default location as Germany
your timezone would also be Germany's timezone
then the windows IE7,8, would use German as your default language
if that help page goes to the German language page it is because you have set the browsers default language as German
