Thanks, I added that now.

Actually it appears that there is no full locale data for any Sámi languages 
in these applications. This means that for example "Sami, Northern (Norway)" 
is not available as default document language (Tools -> Options -> Language 
Settings -> Languages -> Default languages for documents). But you can use it 
as text language (Format -> Character -> Font -> Language) and spell checking.

If this level of support is sufficient also for the missing languages, all I 
need to know is the preferred language code (language-REGION) for them. I can 
then add the mappings to openoffice.org-voikko and submit a request to have 
the languages added to OOo and LibreOffice.

If on the other hand you would like to have the Sámi languages supported as 
proper locales (and appear as a choice for default document language etc.) we 
need the full locale data. Names for months and days of week, decimal 
separator, currency and things like that. In the end we need to produce a file 
like this:
