To do it I need to understand what all these parameters mean.

\installlanguage [..1.] [..,.=2.,..]
2 spacing = packed broad
lefthyphenmin = NUMBER
righthyphenmin = NUMBER
state = start stop
leftsentence = COMMAND
rightsentence = COMMAND
leftsubsentence = COMMAND
rightsubsentence = COMMAND
leftquote = COMMAND
rightquote = COMMAND
leftquotation = COMMAND
rightquotation = COMMAND
leftspeech = COMMAND
middlespeech = COMMAND
rightspeech = COMMAND
limittext = TEXT
date = TEXT
compoundhyphen = COMMAND
leftcompoundhyphen = COMMAND
rightcompoundhyphen = COMMAND
default = IDENTIFIER

What is the difference between quote and quotation? I always use double
quote, like this: „example“

Next, I need to know there all strings, which I translate, will be used.
Maybe, there is an example document with all english strings used.

For example:
Figure 1: Caption of the figure
1 pav. Caption of the figure

Table 1: Caption of the table
1 lentelė. Caption of the table

In a table of contents and in section names there must be period after

1. Name
1.1. Name2
1.1.2. Name3

I use utf8 and MKIV.
