I have the same problem. Changed the language to English because i thought it might help me to learn but now the game wants to download like 2 GB and my internet connection sucks, so it will take forever. ;_;
Is there an ini file somewhere where I could change it back?

Here's how to stop downloading on Windows if you have already started:

1. Close your Diablo 3 downloader.

2. Find "agent.db" file under:
Windows 7 users: C:\ProgramData\Battle.net\Agent\
Windows XP users: C:\Document and settings\All Users\Application Data\Battle.net\Agent\
Please note this is a hidden folder. Or alternatively, you can do a file search for "agent.db".

3. Open agent.db file with text editing tools such as Notepad.

4. Do a search for "selected_locale", change it to the way it was. For example, to change it back to English, put: "selected_locale" : "enUS"

5. Save your changes. Reopen Diablo 3 and have fun!

============= EDIT ==============

Bliz patched it, so this won't work any more. To change it back to English, you now need to:

Delete both "Battle.net" and "Blizzard Entertainment" folders, under "C:\ProgramData".

Hope this helps.

Please note the location of the "agent.db" file. It is NOT under where you installed the game.

Also, deleting the file instead of searching and replacing the content works as well.
