You need 2 things:

- Download the .po template from transifex:
- Clone the master branch from git.

Every string is prefixed with msgid, and then the string. The line(s)
above it describe the location of these strings in the source-code.

For example:

> #: ../src/main_window.c:278
> msgid "Show file properties"
> msgstr ""

Now, lets say this string is wrong. Then you open the file
./src/main_window.c, navigate to line 278, and on that line (or close
to it) you find this string defined between these _(" ") parenthesis.
Change it to something appropriate, and commit the results.

After that, use git format-patch to generate a patch-file that you can
submit to a bug on bugzilla.
