Updating Your Locale Settings

Time zone, locale, language and currency settings can all be altered in the Locale Settings section of your Personal Information page.

“The Salesforce settings for language, locale, time zone, and currency can affect how objects (Accounts, Leads, Opportunities, etc.) are displayed. In a single currency organization, the Salesforce administrators set the currency locale, default language, default locale, and default time zone for their organizations and the users can set their individual language, locale, and time zone on their personal settings pages. In a multiple currency organization, the Salesforce administrators set the corporate currency, default language, default locale, and default time zone for their organizations and the users can set their individual currency, language, locale, and time zone on their personal settings pages.” -salesforce.com (https://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=admin_language_locale_currency.htm&language=en_US)
