Thanks for the offer. We are currently moving our SVN repository to a
new server, so you'll have to be patient for a little while before you
can get started ;-)

The idea is that http://i18n.xfce.org/ will soon contain explanations of
how to work with translations and SVN.

Daichi Kawahata and Jean-Francois Wauthy are the leaders of the 
translation team and I think they have some scripts to make it easier to 
  work with SVN. I'll let them answer you about that. Daichi also has a 
translation guide, if I'm not mistaken.

I am currently maintaining the Dutch translation, but I'm happy with any
help I can get (there's a couple of other things I need to do as well ;-).

Are you familiar with how translations work with gettext and po-files?
Basically, you have a file, nl.po, that contains all translatable
strings of a program and their translations.
