Yes, it has. My use case is: running the GUI with my native language and when I 
need to start an application with English language. So the way would be just as 
described: switch global language settings and thereafter start the 
application, switch back and I would have a running german language GUI with 
one application with English language.

I was thinking of a quicker, one command way to switch global language settings. 
Now dcopserver comes to mind, too, but I haven't investigated the possibilities
