I tried this briefly for one of the LibO beta versions. In theory
the mechanism is there but in reality I ended up with a mix of
English and German help. Maybe this could be fixed, but the no-go
for me was that the activation of the extension took about half an hour
(on a Windows7 DualCore AMD PC).

It does already, but currently it builds index files on installing /
activating the extension what takes a lot of time. I have no idea
if we could "prebuild" the index and put this into the extension.
