I started looking into submittiong translations, and the instructions
say "In case you really cannot find your way through git/Gerrit and
cannot find someone to help you, you may contribute via email after
accepting the CLA on Gerrit."

There are no instructions on how to accept the CLA without configuring
an ssh key though. The ssh instructions are for Linux only - if you're
on Windows, you could run a Linux virtual machine on VMWare for that.
It's a bit overkill though just for adding a translation - things would
be so much easier if we had a Pootle server or something like that.
