do you need the translation in backend or frontend (extensions / 
contents) or both?.

for frontend only there is no need to do core changes.

Add a new website language in your tree root in backend.
and just make sure to add following in your ts setup:

config {

	# your website language id: for example '2'
	sys_language_uid = 2
	# use the official language string here
         # (not required but recommended)
	language = mn
	# check your server languages, just an example
	locale_all = en_US.utf8

now you can add the xml files in l10n folders manually:

or use llxmltranslate or snowbabel to translate your files via "GUI".

for backend you have to modify the core as dmitry already mentioned.
