Upon installing a new version of my favourite page layout program (some time ago), I kept getting some persistent Nordic language setting (seems it was either Afrikaans or Dutch). Reinstalling an earlier version didn’t help because the setting stuck. Nor could I change this setting via the GUI because I can’t make out Germanic languages (other than English), thus, this low level fix. (I assume that you want English as your default language setting.)
Open the file ~/.scribus/prefs13.xml in a texteditor, and look for something like the following.
<attribute key=”gui_language” value=”en_GB”/>
Obviously, “value=”en_GB” is set to something else if you’re having the wrong language enabled. Just change change the file to reflect “en_GB” (while the app is not running) and after saving the file, restart the app..

PS-I can’t take credit for this fix as it came via avox from #scribus. Avox and the other people therein are very helpful and friendly. If you can’t make Scribus do something after reading the documentation, they are happy to help.
