For now, translating upstream KDE or GNOME is not possible right now via

The plan for the future is that for these projects, and maybe some
others, Rosetta will autoimport the files from their published tarballs
or CVS/SVN/bzr repos, and they will be available for translation in
agreement with the upstream translation teams.

This is not a high priority feature, so I wouldn't expect the
infrastructure to get these autoimports done in the near future.

What will happen relatively soon (during the Ubuntu dapper cycle) is
that the kubuntu KDE templates will be imported to the distro tree in
Launchpad, so you'll be able to help with Kubuntu translations via
