Translators are certainly not expected to debian-devel and not even to 
debian-devel-announce (which I think you really meant here). They are 
only expected to subscribe to debian-l18n and possibly a debian-l10n-* 
list if that is relevant to them.

Of course subscription to d-devel and d-devel-announce is allowed and may 
make it possible to see occasional discussions relevant to translation 
work, but that is the same for translators as it is for Debian users. All 
(well, almost) Debian mailing lists are open to everyone who is 
interested, but that does not imply anything like voting rights.

Subscription to d-devel-announce _is_ very useful for announcement 
regarding releases, but the translation coordinators (like Christian) in 
general will make sure than important events or deadlines are also 
announced on d-i18n.

Of course, the more involved you get in Debian, the more you'll want to 
follow other lists than just those specific to the area you work on, 
which is very much appreciated. If you do get more involved, you may want 
to read the Debian Constitution and Social Contract too. That would have 
given you the correct information regarding the democratic processes 
within Debian.
