Mepis language settings

I'm new to Linux and run SimplyMEPIS. Problem is that I need to change the language setting from English USA to English UK.
The settings panel only allows me to set English USA, even though the regional settings are United Kingdom?
Any ideas? do I have to install language packs from a CD? If so how do I do this?

Try this:
Open Synaptic find kde-i18n-engb and install it.
Open Konqueror, type in the address bar: settings:/
Go to Regional & Accessibility -> Country/region & and Language
In a new window find: Add Language -> British English - add it.
