How to change UI from partially Chinese to fully English on M2 Mac with R2023b?

Parts of the UI are in Chinese. For example, menus that display on right click.
Not all of the UI is in Chinese:
I cannot change the settings in Preferences:
And my computer uses English as the primary language:
In documenting this issue, I discovered that removing "Chinese, Simplified" from my list of "Preferred Languages" resolves the issue. I also learned that adding a language as an Input Source also adds it as a Preferred Language, but removing it from the Preferred Language list does not remove it from the Input Sources.
So, at the end of this, I have my fix: Remove "Chinese, Simplified" from my preferred languages. It just feels unnecessary since English is my Primary language there. Not sure if it's a Java thing and I should really be talking to Amazon, but at least this can be here for others who have this issue. Or maybe it's just me.

I had the same issue and had to go through the same solution: I deleted the chinesse and japanese languages from the mac preferences. I am running Matlab R2023b in a MacBook Pro with M1 Max and Sonoma 14.1.

It looks like you tried removing "Chinese, Simplified" from the preferred languages list to fix this issue. This should be a temporary fix. I am escalating the issue with our development teams. Thank you.

Hi Daniel, MATLAB requires the Region and the Preferred Language in System Preferences to be set to the same locale, then restart. Also could you please copy and paste the output from "feature locale" command in MATLAB Command Window? That might show us what settings need to be changed.
Refer to https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/matlab_env/how-the-matlab-process-uses-locale-settings.html in our documenation.
