It can't be done. Everything in Cuneiform is hardcoded in the source code. In multiple different places. Also no-one knows how to generate data files for new languages. The only people who could add this in any reasonable time frame are the original coders at Cognitive Technologies.

Is there any change to communicate with somebody from Cognitive Technologies and ask him to give us a more detailed description of the code and the language files so
that we can do the job?

They say they are working on open sourcing the specifications for those binary blobs. This is all we know for now.
