The LCID may help with compatibility but it is not a strict requirement. 
It is more important to know whether you have some officially assigned 
ISO code. Does such a code exist?

Actually, adding a language is done in the main OpenOffice code (and you

documents in your language. You can also translate the entire OpenOffice 
UI into your language if you wish.
