Yes. What you could do is two, three things:

a) visit www.kde.org and look for the appropriate mailinglists that are of 
interest to you. For documentation and translation, see i18n.kde.org and the 
kde-i18n-doc mailinglist. Lauri Watts may be of help to you to direct you to 
the appropriate locations of what to do. Mail her at lauri@kde.org.

b) you could also contribute to finding bugs and wishes for KDE at 
bugs.kde.org (you should always do that). Create an account for you and 
report bugs :-)

c) Help the people who write third party programs to add documentation and 
translations to your language. Most of the apps are available at apps.kde.com 
in sourcecode, but what you should do is after testing an app that you like, 
go to apps.kde.com, enter the app name and try to find the appropriate page. 
Then look for the homepage and contact the author. Grab the sources from my 
site with apt-get source <programname> and look if there is a po directory 
with a .pot file. Then translate with kbabel and send the <lang>.po file to 
the author to include it in the next release. i18n.kde.org has information 
how to translate applications, you may need to consult the mailinglists how 
to set up kbabel (apt-get install kbabel) from kdesdk correctly so you keep 
the naming convention of your language and can take over already translated 

Also, it would be nice if someone would care about a debian.kde.org (or a 
kde.debian.org respectively) webpage to collect all the info for KDE on 
debian and fill that with content about new apps, where to get KDE for 
woody/sid and how to install it, which features you could use, deblines etc.
