You can read more about becoming a committer here:

A contributor becomes a committer after a period of contributions to
the project.  So how do you get started with contributions if you
cannot check in files?  You start by submitting patches.  This allows
other committers to review your changes and then check them in.

For the translated homepage, it would be good to start with the
English-language version and then translate that.  You can get the
English version here:

When you have a translation you want checked in, you could attach your
translation to a Bugzilla issue:

Excellent !

If you can attach your PO files to a Bugzilla issue as well, that will
help us get them loaded into Pootle.  Or send them to be as an email

You are starting in the same condition as many of our most valued
members.  You start as a contributor, and submit patches.  Then, as
other project members see your great work, you are proposed and voted
in as a committer.
