    It's an all or nothing solution, but:

    Go to Settings > General > International: And change the language to English. This will change the system language of the iPad to English. Pages will detect this and give you English templates.

    Changing the language does a bit of a reset thing on the iPad, so don't panic when you see the spinning wheel for a few seconds.

    I don't know of any other way.


    Now, if you were to create a document from each template (while in English mode) and tuck them away in a folder (or somewhere else), you could switch the language back to Spanish and have a complete set of English templates. You'd have to remember to make duplicates when you wanted a new document, but other than that it should work fine.

    I don't know what else to offer. I did exactly what I suggested (except I switched to Spanish), and all my Numbers templates switched to Spanish. I created and saved a new document from a template, then switched back.

    Hold in mind you have to change the language setting under International (which changes it for the entire system). Changing or adding a keyboard language won't do a thing.
