> I have a GitHub account, but is CC0 used for English translations?

The documentation is under the PYTHON SOFTWARE FOUNDATION LICENSE VERSION 2, see: https://github.com/python/cpython/blob/master/LICENSE
The translations are all under CC0.

> Also, where can I find files with the ".po" extension?

You can get .pot files using sphinx-build -b gettext, but I think the easiest way to bootstrap  a translation is to use my cookiecutter here: https://github.com/JulienPalard/python-docs-cookiecutter

There's some more information here: https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0545/, https://mdk.fr/blog/python-documentation-translation.html and if you're at the PyCon US sprints I'm here, in the cpython room, I'm the one with the Debian thing on my head.
