Of course you could do, language modifications are not that much complicated.

You will need a texture with the Czech font characters,
and translate all strings.
There is one or two place in some script or menu file where the option for Czech language has to be added, then it will work.

You can take a look at the Polish translation that already exists in the demo.

I looked on the Polish translation, then at the polish font *.tga file and it was completly white and there was some "polish.fontdat" file. How can i make a *.fontdat file?

you need a program that lets you view the alpha channel because that is where you will find the characters.

this comes with quake3 or quake4 sdk tools.
it tells the game engine which part of the TGA texture to use for which character, letter or number

You don't specifically open this up. There is a utility with the OJP source that you can convert fonts to the fontdat file.
