Are they not the same...?  I thought Wordpress.com is just an 
implementation of Wordpress.org, and that they both use the same

If you'd like to give using Pootle a try, I'll activate Tamil on it. 
But there is little sense if one translator uses Pootle and another 
translator uses something else.  Merging two translations from two 
different translators is not trivial (but it's not impossible either).

You need to have an account at the Pootle server before I can grant you 
admin-translator rights.  Doing so should be straight-forward, but if 
you struggle, translators have been known to find this helpful:
