Assuming I have understood your request, I think you can already do what you want now using Paragraph Styles. I use the Sidebar > Styles and Formatting > Paragraph Styles. This allows me, for example, to switch between English, American, French and German by a simple mouse click. (F11 toggles the sidebar on and off)

I use the Default Style paragraph style and create the new styles inheriting the characteristics of the default and call them say Default Style-German. Go to the FONT setting and select the language you want, (assuming you have the dictionary installed). The new styles will show up in the Styles and formatting window.

LibO Styles give some very powerful formatting options and it is well worth giving them a look. Hope this helps Peter.
