It’s not generally an easy thing to run one app in a different language from your desktop. But you can do it if you launch the app from the Terminal.

Open a Terminal window and type:
LANGUAGE=en deja-dup

And it should come up in English.

Thanks Michael Terry, that solved my question.

It allows me to launch it in english for a one-shot testing :
LANGUAGE=en deja-dup-preferences
(I re-used the exact Debian launcher command)
