How do I change the system language in SYSLinux:

Hi there. 2 days ago a new linux distro was released called SysLinux and I downloaded and then installed it today. I am actually using it right now!

It appears to be written in both English and Portugese. Does anyone know how I can change the default language to English: (My question marks are unfortunately coming up as colons, so excuse that please)
I tried typing some of the Portugese words into an online Portugese-English dictionary, but have been unsuccessful in finding the word -language- (apostrophes do not work either!) anywhere on the system.

Considering these spelling typos, this distro might not be worth it, but maybe after getting the default language set to English it will sort itself out. I believe that this is a KDE version.

I figured it out. Click the far-right logo that looks like a K, where the Start button is located in Windows, and then a menu list comes up. Click on the first menu sub-heading that is under the Actions section (last section) and this is called Settings. Then click the 4th sub-heading up from the bottom which in English is Regional Accessibility. Then click the second link from the top which in English is Country/Region & Language. You can figure out the rest from there.
