Translations are great - try http://www.debian.org/international/ and
http://www.debian.org/international/Portuguese. There are also specific
parts of the distribution that are easily localizable, such as debconf
templates (http://auric.debian.org/~grisu/debian_translation/);
translating things like that is a valuable thing to do.

Oh, and you can always help people by answering questions on mailing
lists. :)

There are other things - surprisingly few people systematically test the
distribution before it's released, although it gets a great deal of
haphazard testing. If you have the hardware to do some new install and
upgrade testing of the prototype boot-floppies for woody, an awful lot
of people will thank you, as it's the main thing that tends to hold up
releases of Debian. See the debian-boot mailing list for more
