Environment:
Windows
Running CA Service Catalog
Answer:
There is no system setting for this, to accomplish. 
What can be done then is the following. 
Copy all English-locale files over(replace) to the specific language files. 
As an example: 
Copy the complete content of folder: 
C:\Program Files\CA\Service Catalog\view\webapps\usm\locale\icusen 
Over the content of folder: 
C:\Program Files\CA\Service Catalog\view\webapps\usm\locale\icfrfr 

And do this then for all language folder that exist: 
cd C:\Program Files\CA\Service Catalog\view\webapps\usm\locale 
dir/o/b 
explorer icbrpt iccnzh icdede icdkda iceses icfifi icfrfr icitit icjpja icnlnl icsesv icusen netscape4 updates about_info.xml localization.xsl
