On translate.wordpress.com, you can suggest translations using a list of all translatable strings. For more information about the tool, see this documentation.

Ask for Validation or Become a Validator

Translations need to be approved by a validator before they are deployed. If you don’t think your locale’s validator is actively checking suggestions, please let the staff know on the Translations Forums and we’ll take a look. You can also request to become a validator. For details, visit the Language Management and Validation section in our Translation FAQ page.
