Pootle is a long-standing platform. I have used it to translate LibreOffice,
Virtaal and Sugar Labs project. It is reliable, although not very fast. ASAF,
no free Pootle server to translate whatever you like available now. If we want
to use Pootle to translate sane-backends we have to create our own server.
Alternatives are Red Hat's Zanata  hosted by Red Hat Inc. and Weblate 
hosted by its community. Both of the projects allow their servers used for
Zanata can be used in general or as a part of Fedora Project ("upstream" group
). It has monstrous Java client, maintained awfully (almost every new
release break something without adding useful features), does not have
reliable alert system but has the best translation memory capabilities.
Weblate is fresh, relatively fast but slightly overloaded.
Anyway, the first thing needed to use these servers is the sane-backends.pot
file in the repo.
Hope this helps.
