Collaborate: tell the mailinglist to tell everyone what language you want to translate – perhaps some other people would like to help you
Translate: work your way through the translation until your language is 100%
Additionally, there are some help and info texts to translate in github. Here, here and here. There are two ways to complete and submit these translations. You can copy the English files and edit them, keeping the file-names the same, and email them to the translators mailing list, OR you use git/github to fork them and make a pull request.
If you want to get familiar with the Pootle system, try the Foobarian language, which is there for testing. You can play around with it, whatever you want.
