Dates change to German version

I live in Germany and just purchased Family Tree Maker 2012 from in the US assuming that this was the original English language version. I had no problems installing the program, however, while everything else is in English, all dates switch over to German, e.g. March changes to März, December to Dezember, May to Mai, etc. and I cannot find a way to change that. I tried the tool that is supposed to change the display of day, month, and year, but it won't work. I have an all English version of my tree online with Ancestry, but when I downloaded the gedcom, the English dates changed to German, while everything else remained in English. I even started a brand new tree and typed in all dates of birth, baptism, death etc. in English, just to test it -- same problem, the numbers change to the German dates right away. Any solution to this problem?
