I am new to Scribus, so I don't know if this is possible.

What I would try to do in this particular situation is create a document
with a landscape master page that is double the size of a single page,
and divide it into left and right side for each language.

Specifically, if your page size is A4, create a A3 landscape document,
and then use a guide to  divide the page in two sides: left for Lao and
right for English. The left and right page numbers will be in sync as
you desire, but I am not sure how you would output the document in a way
that you can use for printing.
