To help with localizing Financisto, yo have to do the following steps:

1) Get to know how bzr and launchpad works: https://help.launchpad.net
2) Download a copy of the trunk: bzr branch lp:financisto
3) Take a look how localization in Android works: http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/resources/localization.html
4) Create a new folder under /res like /res/values-xx-rYY (please follow http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/resources/providing-resources.html#AlternativeResources to understand correct xx and YY values) and copy default English resources from /res/values/strings.xml to this folder
5) Translate the /res/values-xx-rYY/strings.xml into your language
6) Change /assets/credits.htm and put your name under Localizatiors section
6) Commit the code into your branch
7) Propose your branch for review/merge into trunk

I know, its a lot of work but Localization is a continuous effort and requires some dedication :)

Thank you in advance for making Financisto better!
