Red face Other languages support in RHEL 4 even if OS is installed in english

I am writing tcl script in linux which will compare orignal string and captured string from appilication in all locale.
Since the linux OS is installed in english, the strings of the particular locale are displayed with junk characters in bash terminal from where Tcl script runs. How to make linux to display the strings of particular locale correctly in bash terminal so that tcl script can compare the strings perfectly. Appilication supports 20 languages. We should be able to read the strings in that particular locale even if linux is installed in english . I am using RedHat Enterprise Linux 4 as linux operating system.Kindly help me on this.

Just install the locales used by the other languages. If the system was "installed in english", it probably only means that non-english locales just weren't installed, or configured to be used.

locale -a
should show all locales available if I'm right.
