Ok, so I wasn't totally off :).

svn is a Versionning Control System (
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apache_Subversion). Like git for example if
you know. Basically, it is to be able to have an history on files updates.
All the translations are stored in it and accessible online via
https://websvn.kde.org/. More specifically, for GCompris, you can find the
templates in

For the commits rights, it is better to check with the other translators.
If I'm not wrong, they require a minimum amount of translation done before
giving the rights.

Po files are the files containing the translations. They are the templates
from the previous link. For GCompris, we require gcompris_qt.pot
to be at least 80%, the other ones are "less" important for the users.
They contain all the strings from the application in English and a line
below each one for the translation.
