Free software projects are not very hierachical, meaning that you can
contact directly anyone you want to collaborate with. If you want to do
translations, find a list that deals with the language you can translate
and send an introductory message about your interest and skill level.
Hopefully they will point you towards more information about how they
translate their (website|software). You then proceed at your own pace
and interest level (aka 'scratch your own itch'), gaining skills in the
proceess. If you have other issues once you start your interaction with
various tasks, you can certainly ask here for more guidance or advice.
Also, your question was not very specific, so I could not advise you
with more detail. So if you have a more specific question, ask that.
Hope that helps,
PS. the debian lists are located at lists.debian.org, search there for
some interesting list and join as many as you like. Most are low
activity lists (unlike debian-user which has more than a 100 posts/day)
