Hi Dale,

I'm forwarding your question to the Apache list where OpenOffice
development discussions are now taking place.  Hopefully someone here
has an answer to your question, about how to get started making a new
language translation of OpenOffice.

After sending my email, I was afraid it would be construed that way.
I don't mean adding a language to my installation that OOo already
supports.  I mean adding a language to those that OOo supports.  I'm
specifically thinking of the Neapolitan language (I dislike using the
term dialect, but it is commonly referred to as an Italian dialect).
