I am not using the Nikon LS 20 35mm scanner (only a UMAX Astra 600S 
flatbed scanner), but the SilverScan software is supposed to be of good 
quality as I read somewhere.
Are you sure the software did not come in several language versions on 
your CD-ROM? Normally these things are shipped with several language 
versions on 1 CD-ROM.
If not, why don't you use Adobe Photoshop or Adobe PhotoDeluxe? I guess 
there must be a plug-in supplied by Nikon in its software package. This 
could work as an alternative to SilverScan. I am doing the same with my 
UMAX scanner.
