Well, first you will probably have to get a locale made available for
that language.  Check
<URL:http://www.student.uit.no/~pere/linux/glibc/> for info on how to
do that.  As far as I can see, from the glibc source, there is no such
language supported by glibc today.

The language code is registered in ISO 639,

  Language Name  Language Name  639-2  639-1
  (English)      (French)
  Malagasy       malgache       mlg    mg

It is perhaps not possible to start translating before the locale is
in place.
