Of course they could.

Why ? What would you do with a Russian or a French patch if you do not
understand the language ?

It depends. Some Translators, non-DD, have a write access to debian-doc
cvs (I am in that case).

Some translators, who do not have write access to the repository, are using a 
proxy, i.e. a Translation coordinator.

Some translators are DD.

I believe that the best thing, to encourage translations, is to let them
on the same place. How could a translation coordinator correct a bug, or
a typo if he has not been provided a write access ? Note that some
translation coordinators are not DD.

I don't really believe that translators are familiar with it.
