If it was, then you would already have some translations ;-)

The proof that there are people ready to translate may be 
seen even in this thread.

Hard to talk about others, but I can't imagine doing translation
without a chance to test it. In fact, to do the translation, one needs
the following:

a) base file(s) to edit (or instructions how to create it/them) - be it .pot
   or anything else

b) this file format description (or link to such)

c) instruction how to compile/check/... the  translated file

d) instruction how to run mercurial with translated file to test it live

e) instruction where/to whom submit the translated file

f) (in the longer term) instruction how to track updates

Is anybody able to write such instruction? 

PS Launchpad has some GUI and tools to manage and track translation
efforts.  Maybe it could make sense to take a look at this?
