Swahili OpenOffice locale


We have started our work with the Swahili locale for Tanzania sw_TZ.xml. The locale is a XML document that encodes among other things the way that dates, ordering or abbreviations of months and name of days are done in a certain specific language.


Special thanks to Javier Sola from the Khmer localization project in Cambodia and Dwayne Bailey from Translate in South Africa for their constant support.
