Very good, thank you! This ought to be the norm rather than the 
exception... By the way, Polish has been 100% translated and released 
for OpenOffice 3.4.1 in January 2013 so we do have Polish translators, 
but I'm not sure how they are managing the 4.x translation. Anyway, you 
would be more than welcome if you want to join the team, you are still 
perfectly in time to make it for the OpenOffice 4.0 release.

Juergen is right: this is the ideal situation, especially for code that 
comes from other project and is relicensed. For minor contributions, 
however, we don't require this: attaching your files to Bugzilla is OK, 
see Juergen's last and answer, more details below.

Then, the way to make your contribution is to:
- open an issue on (if there are too many 
fields, don't worry: we will fix them as needed; you can copy some 
fields from )
- attach your translation to it
- state in the issue body that you are the author of the contributed 
files and that you are contributing them under the Apache License, 
version 2.

That will work for the time being. As you can understand, for larger 
contributions we usually need better guarantees, hence the need for 
signed forms.

Anonymity is not a problem at Apache. We even have committers (those 
with an address) who chose to stay anonymous and who 
contribute under a pseudonym. This is accepted at Apache, but on the 
form you will need to specify your full name. The form information is 
regarded as highly confidential and it is only accessible to the 
OpenOffice Project Management Committee.
