I don't know about flatpaks, but I bundle locales for Thunderird for
macOS. Maybe this is similar. To do so I get the localized files from
here, depending on which version I want to build:

And than specify the locale in the mozconfig. But I need to say, I have
some problems building a localized TB 60. If you want to bundle a lot of
locales, maybe this procedure will be easier:
But, this did not work for me for Thunderbird, maybe you have more luck.

If you just want to build a language pack, you can also give this a try:

As I told, I don't know if this works for flatpaks, but maybe it is
