Thank you George, I thought a bit about this but in the end the solution 
you have now, i.e., the list of expressions in a two-column table, seems 
the best solution. We don't have translation facilities available 
withing OpenOffice.

OpenOffice does not currently have any kind of support for Dholuo, and 
you could help in making Dholuo known to OpenOffice (no translation 
involved: it just means that OpenOffice will know that there exists a 
language named Dholuo - or Luo).

To do this, you should provide information about your language (for 
example, is 1000/3 written "333,33" or "333.33"?) as explained in

There is a link to a "generator" on that page. You will receive a lot of 
warnings but it still works. When you have generated an appropriate file 
for Dholuo (it seems it's listed under "Luo") please send it to us and 
we will integrate it in OpenOffice so that at least you can, for 
example, say that a document is written in Dholuo, even if there isn't a 
dictionary available yet.
