check out boot-floppies cvs and look in the 
/utilities/dbootstrap/po/ from the README in that dir:

How to create a new translation?

    Just copy the file dbootstrap.pot into <lang>.po file.  <lang> is
    taken from ISO 639.

Then start translating.  If you have any questions see
http://cvs.debian.org, or post to this list.  Thanks :-)
