How is visiting a website, using search to find the string you want to
change, just change it and submit for review a big learning step? How could
pootle be easier to use?

Pootle surely is not used when you start from scratch. For that, you would
download the po files from pootle and translate offline. But similarly
finding that download and upload functionality is not hard either, or is it?

There needs to be some kind of back end, to allow for permissions, user
groups and stuff.

Therefore in my eyes, a simpler workflow could substantially improve
crowd-sourcing of help file translations / corrections. Example:
 - present an "edit" or "translate" button on every page or even paragraph

Linking that to pootle probably is not too hard, if the concept of the
string ids stays the same..

With that, you would get the rest as well "for free"
