Hi Moue,

This is great work you have done there, we will take care of uploading 
these in the svn tree.

> In addition, I'd like to translate the documents (on the website) at
> xfce.org into Japanese if possible.
> Could you tell me how to contribute if you didn't mind?
To translate the website you could use the svn tools to download the 
essential files. If you have svn and know how to use it, you can issue 
this command:

svn co http://svn.xfce.org/svn/www/www.xfce.org/trunk/i18n i18n

This will download the whole i18n tree to be translated. Take the files 
with en inside and change them to ja. An example would be to change 
"header.en.php"  to "header.ja.php". Translate the file and you are 
done. You will then just send the files to the list and we will upload 
them. The files should be formatted in utf8 only and please compress 
them using tar.gz or tar.bz2.

If you are not familiar with svn, we can still send you a tarball 
containing all the main files to be translated. You can also take a look 
at the i18n.xfce.org website which hosts a lot of useful information on 
how to proceed when translating.

There is already a japanese translator and he is also supervising the 
translations for Xfce. Please contact Kawahata Daichi and tell him about 
your plans, daichi at xfce.org.
