I'm running KDE/Plasma on Wayland both in my main workstation and
development virtual machine. On both machine it looks like Python is
unable to change the system's locale when running a script  in
Konsole, while the same script from a linux terminal runs fine.
I tried to create a new user and logging in as this new user the script
runs fine in Konsole also. I cannot find any setting which may cause
that, I also tried to delete the konsole configuration file under
.config so as to reset from scratch, but with my main user I can't get
to run the script right.
Any idea where I might look to find the cause?
I believe your problem lies in the LANGUAGE environment variable
(probably set to your local language by ~/.bashrc, ~/.bash_profile, or
such), not in Konsole or KDE.
In my environment I was able to reproduce a similar behavior as in
your bug report with the linked Python snippet and adding
LANGUAGE='en_US' to the env dict changed the strings to the English
language for me.
