The Translations page in the Ubuntu Wiki explains the process very well.

While that page is an excellent resource and no answer would be complete without recommending it, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – Eliah Kagan Aug 24 '12 at 3:50

Go to, and get an account (there's a Creating an account link in the "Get started" section).

Then go to the translations area (there's also a link from the home page).
