that sounds great. First you need to download the gnubg.pot file from here:
This is a plain text file containing all the strings that need
translation. After you have filled in the data in the header and saved
the file with an appropriate name (es.po) you are ready to start
translating. If you have a good favorite text editor you may use that,
but I suggest that you download poedit (just google for it), which
will make your task a lot easier. After you have translated a limited
number of strings you should send the result to me directly, so that
we can make sure that things work as expected.
Welcome to the team, Christian.
