Umh, I use emacs, intltool, gettext and apt.

Here is a list of packages to translate:

update-notifier
update-manager
synaptic

Do something like this:

1. apt-get source package
2. translate the package
3. submit it to the developers of the package

There is also some kind of webinterface called Rosetta, personally I
dont like it but you may.

Happy hacking!
