How to change the language of the date and time inserted by TextFX in Notepad++?

Regardless of changing the Notepad++ UI language - TextFX doesn’t react accordingly and doesn’t change the language of time and date (long format). Is there a way I could fix it without a need to reinstall Notepad++?

Not via TextFX. But there are other ways to get the date/time inserted. See this maybe.
I don’t think a reinstall of N++ will do anything here.

Looks interesting, thank You. I
decided to use AutoHotkey as a workaround. I can ascribe a keyboard shortcut for it to insert the current date and time. Interestingly, it acts similarly to the TextFX - i.e. it obeys a user’s OS language. So instead of using native syntax to display a month’s name - I’ve used this:
formattime, monthvar, , MM if (monthvar=01) (cmonth:="January") if (monthvar=02) (cmonth:="February")
…and so on. And then, if I want to insert the current month’s name:
send ...some nice %cmonth%
