This is widely repeated, but only partially true. We could package and 
distribute OpenOffice in more than 100 languages tomorrow (so to say; of 
course it would need some infrastructure work, but the translations are 

Swedish is at 95% in OpenOffice (which means 96% after the, now useless, 
TestTool strings are removed) and at 96% in LibreOffice, as one can find 
from the respective Pootle statistics. Of course, these numbers are not 
very significant since they should be taken at release time, but this is 
what I could find now.

So, for the vast majority of languages, this is only a matter of release 
policy: so far, OpenOffice only releases translations where there are 
active volunteers who bring the translation to 100%. We already have a 
couple of volunteers working on Swedish, so I'm confident we can reach 
100% and release 3.4.1 in Swedish in January.

The recent post from Juergen at
is quite informative in this respect.
