You can find the .pot file to translate here: 

Save it as vlc.pot. You can find instructions on how to translate here: 

Use the software poEdit to edit the .pot file. You can find poEdit here: 

Save your modified file with all translations as sw.po (sw is the 
language code for Swahili), and then send it to the translation 
co-coordinators, either xtophe at videolan.org or No_se -

Addendum from Christoph Miebach:
I could also offer you the choice of using transifex. You would have to 
create an account there and request the creation of a Swahili team here 
(only if you _want_ to use transifex):
