Is it possible to add text also as link from some files, so I can change the text outside of Scribus? It would simplify my work a lot, since I have to prepare my document in two languages...

If you use Story Editor, File > Save Text will allow you to save your 
frame contents in a plain text file (not your ODT).

Then you can later File > Load Text from another file.

These operations should save and load the body of text that is in 
however many linked frames there are.
