That would be a better way of handling it than a false language
setting. Language settings, being invisible, have a nasty tendency to
leak to where they're not intended. I've had no success trying it out
in OpenOffice or LibreOffice, and Windows 2010 reportedly doesn't allow
two different sets in the same document.

The interaction of quotes with other punctuation is supposed to be a
case, though it is also claimed that there is no national uniformity.
The same goes for the choice of single and double quotes.
