How to translate error message to English

I'm working in Japanese Environment, WindowsXP (Japanese). Oracle9i installed on that. By default, the error messages, when I execute SQL/PLSQL in SQLPlus, are displayed in JAPANESE. Is there any setting that can be changed so that I can get all the error messages in English! Your answer definetely makes my Oracle life easier on these Japanese systems.
