It's Czech, then:)
To change the GUI language to English, select Soubor/Nastaveni, and
switch the "Jazyk" list to "English" or "Angličtina" (depending on
what you'll see in the drop down list).

Wrong assumption, you shouldn't attempt to open the preferences _file_
in Scribus. As stated above: Soubor/Nastaveni, and everything will be fine.
