Welcome! There are multiple levels of supporting a new language in 
OpenOffice. The best place for language-related discussions is the l10n 
list but we can start 
here on the dev list.

The first step is to add Faroese to the document languages in OpenOffice 
unless it's already there. This is needed to describe that a document is 
written in Faroese (even if you use, e.g., the English version of 
OpenOffice to write it). It also enables recognition of a Faroese 
spellchecker. This will require a bit of work on your side, but it can 
be done in a few days.

The second step is to add Faroese as an interface language. This is a 
significant effort, as the interface is a lot of text; it is best done 
by a team and it will take several weeks.

Would you like to start with the first step while you get organized for 
the second? In that case I can give you more detailed instructions on 
what information we need from you.
