Sounds as though you may need to change your system locale from en_GB 
to en_US. How you do that depends on your distro. You can change the 
user's locale for KDE applications in systemsettings - Region & 
Language - Country/Region & Language.

US English is the KDE default and so you should not have to install 
any additional packages.
