That's great news. I was desperating finding a Croatian (hr) translator...

Serbian is currently stucked down, by the way, but, yes, Bosnian and
Slovenian are OK. We also have contacts for Macedonian and, speaking
about former Yugoslavia, we also have Albanian (spoken in Kosovo and
of course Albania)....
So, yes, Croatian missing is definitely Not Good....and, thus, finding
a HR translator is great.
I'm usually the contact for people starting to work on d-i
l10n. However, because of French Bastille Day week-end, I'll be away
for 5 days....leaving in 2 hours and being back on Sunday 18th evening.

You need to apply for an account on Alioth (alioth.debian.org).
Then ask to email@example.com, mentioning your Alioth account name, for
commit access to the d-i repository. Checkout the whole repository
(instructions for this are on the translation status page) and put
your hr.po files for 1st stage at the appropriate places. For 2nd and
3rd, we'll see after.
In case you need help until July 18th, ask firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some work is also needed in languagechooser languegelist and
languagelist.l10n files. Look into these for entries about other
languages. I think there is even entries for Croatian, currently
I'm really glad to see someone jumping in for hr....
