Selam Solomon. Welcome to the grass translators community .
If you are using grass from cvs you need to recompile grass after 
translating any po file. You can find information about installation of 
grass here:
If you are using packages, I don't if it is possible some hacking to 
change installed files by your translated one.
And also information about translation process here:

It's not necessary to wait until translation is finished. You can 
include your files at any stage in the cvs, so others using cvs grass 
can see it translated, although partially.
