You mean at LibreOffice run-time? Sure, libintl (gettext's gettext-runtime/intl) is portable just fine to Windows. After all, all it does is open and read files.

Some slight tweaks to the libintl source code might be needed to make sure the right language gets selected. Or, just have LibreOffice set a LANGUAGE environment variable to correspond to its current UI language before invoking the libintl functions.
