[Slackbuilds-users] LibreOffice, LOLANGS and dictionaries

I would like to ask what LOLANGS is about in LibreOffice.SlackBuild?
Is it only about user interface language?
Or does it influence for example date/time format, currency, etc?

it's not clear to me what localized means.

About dictionaries:
I like the way Alien has all the available dictionaries in separate 

Is the 
https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/office/libreoffice-langpack/ the 
way to do it in the same manner?

I see that Willy is using different dictionaries tarball:
LibreOffice_5.2.3_Linux_x86_rpm_langpack_en-GB.tar.gz (Willy)
libreoffice-dictionaries- (Alien)

BTW, If you don't have the answer right now, I'll investigate it on my 
own. But maybe somebody already knows the answer.

Also, LibreOffice README says that I can use hunspell dictionaries.
Do you have any experience with that?
Are they better in any way?
Or are they the same thing as the dictionaries built by Alien?

LibreOffice README correction:
- "distionary" should be changed to "dictionary",
- "hunspell.pl" should be changed to "hunspell-pl",
- I would suggest that README contained "ALL" that can be passed to 
LOLANGS (LO wiki mentions it).

SlackBuild correction:
Not having pl in LOLANGS="de es fr id it ja nl vi zh-CN"
is programming error :-^
