Using \begin{algorithm} environment with only \usepackage{algorithm2e} in the preamble (and of course the usual packages for an article document),

the environment by default titles the algorithm "Algorithmus 1" upon render. Why? I want it to be "Algorithm 1".

    Could you post a complete minimal code with this problem?

    Is this question still open ? The only answer seems to be the right way to do this, consider accepting it if it is useful.

You haven't shown any code that we could process. I am guessing that you might be using the czech option. If so use the \SetAlgorithmName command after the \usepackage...

\SetAlgorithmName{<algorithmname>}{<algorithmautorefname>}{<list of algorithm name}

as explained in the manual (texdoc algorithm2e).
