Per the manual https://www.gnu.org/software/gettext/manual/gettext.html#The-LANGUAGE-variable

> Note: The variable LANGUAGE is ignored if the locale is set to ā€˜Cā€™. In other words, you have to first enable localization, by setting LANG (or LC_ALL) to a value other than ā€˜Cā€™, before you can use a language priority list through the LANGUAGE variable.

Currently this only works with the C locale, but not C.UTF-8.
It would make sense for this behaviour to also apply when the locale is C.UTF-8.
