You can localize themes and plugins quite easily, you need to read about internationalization (I18n). WordPress codex explains it pretty well: http://codex.wordpress.org/I18n_for_WordPress_Developers.

Any HTML text in your theme files should be output with the i18n functions, this will make the string translatable. For example:

<p>Some text here</p>

should be:

<p><?php _e("Some text here", "textdomain"); ?></p>

You can later translate this exact string with a POT file, see here: http://codex.wordpress.org/I18n_for_WordPress_Developers#POT_files

I can't stress how important it is to read the codex on internationalization - it can explain it better than I ever can.
