I think you have to download the english version instead of the German version. If I clicked Dutch as language in the download I got aDutch version, and now I chose English as language and the whole program is in English

Found another way:
In the program folder in your OpenOffice folder there's a file called setofficelang.bin. Run that with your language code and it'll change if it's possible
