Locales

If you want to use Os X in English but keeping a national (i.e. European) format for dates, time and value you cannot do a sensible configuration via System Preference (unless selecting Custom as a Region and fiddling way too much with the settings).

An easy solution is to set your locale via terminal. If, for example, you want to use English but using Italian formats you can issue:

$ defaults write -g AppleLocale 'en_IT'
