Can I use the English version of Starcraft 2 to play on a localized server (for example Russian)?

If yes what should I do for it? Where can I download an English version of Starcraft 2?

If you're asking if you can play the English version of Starcraft 2 on a non-English server (eg. SEA), then the answer is: No.

If you're asking if you can play the English version on a non-Blizzard server, that question is beyond the scope of and you'll have to go else where for an answer.

I'm asking about blizzard servers :( – Sly Sep 20 '10 at 8:13
@Sly sorry I couldn't tell from your phrasing – tzenes Sep 20 '10 at 8:40
You should mention that it's "beyond the scope.." because it's illegal (or at least against the ToS) – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Sep 20 '10 at 20:05

You cannot play the game in a region where a certain language is not available when you purchase it.

I had that very same problem, and after a lot of mail exchanges with blizzard support, the asked me to post the request in the forums, and so I did.

You can show your support in that thread and in the many others about the same topic, and perhaps someday it'll be possible.
