Change JIRA Rest Api output locale / Language

Hi all,

I'm using the jira rest api and have a problem with localized output. 

Example: A user has set his locale to "de_DE", so an open issue woud show as "offen" (german for open) in the api output, whereas with "en_US" it would show as "open". Is there a way to change the rest api locale without changing the users jira locale? something like [api request]&locale=en_US or something similar would be great.

Thanks in advance
