Locale has other constructors besides those that take an constant integer. Have you tried something like "Locale.get("sr", "scg")"?
Documentation is your friend, if you go to the Locale API doc page, it says it's "Compatible with java.util.Locale in Java's standard edition." and links to the java.util.Locale API docs.
In the explanation section of that page it lists out ISO-639 and ISO-3166 codes which are used in the creation of a Locale. If you are making resource files and localizing them then you would simply append the language codes to the end of the resource file's name and BlackBerry will handle picking the correct language for you (unless you want a specific language, then you need to use the Locale class).
Last, since you said that you are making a translation app, know that BlackBerry does not do translation. You need to use the previously mentioned resource files and store different translations, or use an online service. BlackBerry's (and any other device's) handling of languages is simply to pick the correct resource file since errors, messages, etc. are usually locale specific, they don't do any translation internally.
Just trying to cover all bases.

Thanks for your response. but i didn't try something like "Locale.get("sr", "scg")". can you provide me a demo, how to use this, & how to use Locale class for SERBIAN, SLOVENIAN languages?

That kinda was the (unplanned) demo.
I don't use Locale and since you seem like you are using it, but you can't FIND a certain locale, I looked up the ISO codes and attempted to produce the proper Locale get function.
The only place I know you can use it is with getting a ResourceBundle. That way you can get language specific resource bundles.

Sorry for the delay, have been very busy lately.
I went through 2 sites to see how to use Locale (the normal J2SE version) just because I havn't really had a need for it:
The second link lists a bunch of locale values, so I tried 2 of the ones for Serbian and Slovenian.
Slovenian (generic): Locale.get("sl")
Slovenian (Slovenia): Locale.get("sl", "SI")
Serbian (generic): Locale.get("sr")
Serbian (Yugoslavia): Locale.get("sr", "YU")
They worked just fine, if this isn't what your looking for then I don't know.
