According to this page, all users, even if not logged in, can enter
translation "suggestions":

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/INFRA/translate+pootle+service+auth+levels

These suggestions then can be accepted by a committer.

That helps a little, but it raises other issues. For example, if a
user is not logged in, then how do I know who gets credit for the
translation?
