admin_gui should use the preferred browser language:

Administration in the locale country language is great but it could be good to
have the ability to display the administration tool in English to ease
communication with the GlassFish community for instance (I am currently stucked
because I do not know how to configure my GlassFish instance according to what
English speaking people say)

The support should be there and has been for all release.
Did you download the version that has multi-language support ?

Should be the one with "ml" in the name.

Yes, my installation comes from "glassfish-3.0.1-windows-ml.exe".

is displayed in my locale language machine configuration even if I change my
browsers language settings

This is jdk issue. glassfish en property files are called
When you set browser preferred language to en, java will look for, since it can not locate it, it will fall back to OS
locale before trying Since glassfish is localized to your
OD locale, it will load the localized property file before falling back to
You have 2 workarounds:
1- change you OS locale to en and restart the server
2- change glassfish JVM locale and restart it. login to admin gui ->
Configuration -> JVM Settings -> JVM Options
add JVM option: -Duser.language=en
