With the snippet below you can set the specific number format settings for the page with the GridView on Page_PreInit without changing the whole UI language. This will of course affect all number formats on the page, not just the GridView.

protected void Page_PreInit(object sender, EventArgs e)
        CultureInfo newCultureInfo = (CultureInfo)CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.Clone();
        NumberFormatInfo numberFormatInfo = (NumberFormatInfo)newCultureInfo.NumberFormat.Clone();
        numberFormatInfo.NumberDecimalSeparator = ",";
        numberFormatInfo.NumberGroupSeparator = ".";
        numberFormatInfo.NumberDecimalDigits = 2;
        newCultureInfo.NumberFormat = numberFormatInfo;
        System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture = newCultureInfo;
