I would say this is Windows 3.11 (or WFW 3.11)!

WFW 3.11 is available in dozens of languages, don't know what makes you think it's in English exclusively.

1. I once uploaded all those international Windows 3.x'es onto the AbyssUnderground server, and they're now on SillyProject as well.
2. Russian Windows 3.x just needs MS-DOS code page 866, which is a normal 256-characters code page, so it is available on English MS-DOS versions as well. ;)
