You can set NLS_LANG variable just in the shell session where you start the Installer.

Just run

NLS_LANG=en_US.UTF-8

in the shell before you start the installer

Dear Sir,

looks like i forget to mention the OS. My customer server is Windows 2008 r2 datacenter, so how to set to english locale without resetting the server's locale?

thanks

Exactly the same as you do in *nix.

Open a command session (cmd.exe). This is the Windows poor excuse fro the equivalent of a shell process.
Set the environment variable. In *nix, you just state the name of the variable and its value (myvar=somevalue). In Windows, you use the 'set' commend (set myvar=somevalue).

So presumably you went for the following:
SET NLS_LANG=en_US.UTF-8
How did that work out for you?
