There is a text mode app that you can use(debconf)

From a terminal run

sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales

Follow the instructions on screen and when prompted select the languages you want

I recomment always adding the ones with unicode support(i.e your_language.utf_8) along with the other encodings for your language

then you'll be prompted to select a default, choose your favorite

as for OpenOffice, I think you need to install language support using synaptic(I assume you know how to use it) if not then it gotta be a bug in OpenOffice(I've had the same problem with spanish characters) try installing abiword from the add/remove programs tool
