I do not know the way to do this inside Mathematica but I can suggest a
"hack" way. You can use a local proxy-server like HandyCache
(it includes English localisation).
It allows to disable updating any HTTP GET() data by setting global rule "*"
in "Don't update" list (Mathematica must be set to work through this proxy).
