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.

Thanks, your hint has made me making some progress.
By comparing the `printenv` output in linux terminal and in konsole I
see that both have `LANG=it_IT.UTF-8` (which is correct), but konsole
adds `LANGUAGE=it:en_US` which seems a strange value.
Unset the LANGUAGE variable make the script run fine.
I now have to find out what KDE setting is injecting the LANGUAGE
variable... there's nothing in bashrc or bash_profile, so it may be some
