howto combine locale en_US and de_DE in Ubuntu

I prefer my Ubuntu Desktop in English,
but want to have some settings in German, like date and time.

So i get e.g. the German date format 07.02.2010 instead of 02/07/2010 in Orage calendar.

To setup mixed en_US and de_DE locale simple configure /etc/environment

LANGUAGE="en_US:en"
LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_COLLATE="C"
LC_CTYPE="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_MESSAGES="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_NAME="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_NUMERIC="en_US.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="de_DE.UTF-8"
LC_TIME="de_DE.UTF-8"
