I think you should contact the translator team of your language and try to 
solve some of the mistakes. We can't duplicate efforts IMHO.
The dicts are created to be used with your own native language, the Scribus 
doesn't use more than one hyphenation dict at time (am i right?) so you 
always will get some problems with foreign words.

Whatever, you can use a hyphenation-expection dict with OO.o (maybe, with a 
little hacking, in Scribus too). Very handful I think.

A googling should helps :-)
