Running command prompt command in English

I want to run a command line programme on Windows, here is the code.

    public static String runcmd(String cmd) throws IOException {
    ProcessBuilder builder = new ProcessBuilder(cmd);
    builder.redirectErrorStream(true);
    Process p = builder.start();
    BufferedReader r = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(p.getInputStream()));
    String line;
    StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
    while (true) {
        line = r.readLine();
        if (line == null)
            break;
        sb.append(line + "%SKIPLINE%");
    }
    System.out.println(sb.toString());
    return sb.toString();
}

Everything work fine, except that it prints out the output in Chinese because my Windows language is set to Chinese. Is there any ways to make it output in English?
