Changing German documentation to English

I have copied a SAP program to use it as a base for a new customer program. I have to change the program documentation but when I try I get the pop up telling me to maintain the documentation in German. How can I change the program documentation origin language to English?

To change the original language of an ABAP you need to copy it from the original into one development class - perhaps local - and then change the development class. When you go into edit the ABAP, you have the option of changing the original language. However, I can't find anything similar for the program documentation! As a workaround, you can use SE63 to modify the translation of the documentation for your copy.
