Great question! The wiki works differently than other systems we use for
translations and doesn't really have the concept of 'translation
administrator'. Just like anybody with a Launchpad account can create
and edit pages, anybody can contribute a translation.

In order to translate a page you simply have to:

 - Click on "edit the page" (after you log in)
 - Put the content (usually the whole page) inside
<translate></translate> tags
 - Save the page
 - Once the page is saved, look at the page and you'll see there is a
URL added saying "Mark this page for translation"
 - Click on that link and follow instructions

To see how that works, have a look at Juno Release notes page, check the
source of the page:


Hope this helps,
