    How to change languageto swedish/latin on CentOS?

    Hello,
    I've worked a lot to get my server working but now I discovered that I choose wrong language support when I installed CentOS 5. It works in HTTPD to set the default charset to UFT-8 but when I try to use PHP functions as ucwords() and when I try to phrase XML it doesn't work as it should so I need to set the locale? or language? to the default one for Swedish so I can use the Swedish , and letters.

    I've tried with:
    localedef -i sv_SE -f ISO-8859-1 sv_SE
    export LC_ALL=sv_SE
    export LANG=sv
    and similar but it doesn't work.

    So please, I'm greatful for anything that could help me solve this.

    Thanks,
    Oskar

    Hello again,
    Here is what happens when I try to change in the way I mentioned in my first post:
    [root@localhost ~]# localedef -i sv_SE -f ISO-8859-1 sv_SE.UTF-8
    [root@localhost ~]# export LC_ALL=sv_SE.UTF-8
    [root@localhost ~]# export LANG=sv_SE.UTF-8
    [root@localhost ~]# locale
    LANG=sv_SE.UTF-8
    LC_CTYPE="sv_SE.UTF-8"
    LC_NUMERIC="sv_SE.UTF-8"
    LC_TIME="sv_SE.UTF-8"
    LC_COLLATE="sv_SE.UTF-8"
    LC_MONETARY="sv_SE.UTF-8"
    LC_MESSAGES="sv_SE.UTF-8"
    LC_PAPER="sv_SE.UTF-8"
    LC_NAME="sv_SE.UTF-8"
    LC_ADDRESS="sv_SE.UTF-8"
    LC_TELEPHONE="sv_SE.UTF-8"
    LC_MEASUREMENT="sv_SE.UTF-8"
    LC_IDENTIFICATION="sv_SE.UTF-8"
    LC_ALL=sv_SE.UTF-8
    [root@localhost ~]# shutdown -r now

    Broadcast message from root (pts/0) (Tue Oct 16 13:15:29 2007):

    The system is going down for reboot NOW!
    login as: root
    root@xxx.xxx.xxx.xx's password:
    Last login: Tue Oct 16 13:11:38 2007 from xxx.xxx.xxx.xx
    [root@localhost ~]# locale
    LANG=en_US.UTF-8
    LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_TIME="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_COLLATE="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_MONETARY="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_PAPER="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_NAME="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_ADDRESS="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_TELEPHONE="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_MEASUREMENT="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_US.UTF-8"
    LC_ALL=
    [root@localhost ~]#

    In other words, after restart it gets back to what it was before and before restart it doesn't have any affect on the system...
