I just upgraded to Windows 10 from a German Windows 7 installation. I switched my display language to English (United States) and my region to English (United Kingdom). Now whenever I search for some settings like for example “UAC”, the search results will still be in German.
I already tried removing German completely in the language settings, switched between German and English as my display language several times and also rebuilt the search index.
Any solutions before I have to reinstall the OS entirely are appreciated.
I just ran into this myself. Try rebuilding the 'index', this is where the start-menu searchresults are stored.

I had a similar problem (actually, my entire laptop was in Thai). I did the following steps:
To open Settings, go to the Action Center (the icon in the taskbar beside the clock) and press All Settings.
Go to Settings → Time and Region → Region and Language → Delete all other languages and only keep English. My keyboard layout was also Thai, so that can be changed here too.
Control Panel → Region → Format → Set it to English
Control Panel → Region → Location → Set it properly
Control Panel → Region → Administrative → Change system locale → Select English
This was the most important step. You may reboot after this.
Again reboot! After doing all this German should vanish entirely from your laptop. After this, make sure you have deleted German language and selected override English as language everywhere just to be sure.

When you change the language in Windows not all the nooks and crannies of the OS are affected. I haven't run into your problem before, but I would try copying the language setting to other parts of Windows. Here's how.
