That's because upstream has already a team translating into that

You should coordinate with them so your work is reused by upstream. That
means talk with them so they now you are going to work on that
translation, use Rosetta to translate, export your translation as a .po
file and send it to them so they store your translation and it's used by
any other distribution not only by Ubuntu.

To translate for Ubuntu, we requiere that you join/create a translation
team for the language you are interested on.

Here you have our current translation team list:

Just request to join any of them. Just in case the team you are
interested on does not exists, just send me an email requesting the
language team you want to create and I will add it for you.

You don't need to join any team to translate, you can use Rosetta
anyway, but you depend on any member of the team to activate your
translation so it's used by the applications in Hoary.

My knowledge about all that is a bit limited...

I think that if CharacterMap has support for the characters you want,
gedit would let you use them without major problems as long as you
select that font from its preferences.

Daf, any extra help here?
