Is there any way to involve TranslateWiki in translated MediaWiki:
Sometimes things are translated via subpages, e.g. MediaWiki:Foo/fr,
MediaWiki:Foo/de, etc. That works okay for static texts, but it's hard
to know when or if we're missing a translation.
It gets worse on Commons where licenses are defined by
MediaWiki:Licenses. Ignoring the "language hacks" that were done like
"enownwork", this is really a data structure that has to be
internationalized, and sometimes the different translations of the data
structure get out of sync....

We support namespaces aliases depending on the user gender. This is
perfect for the USER and USER_TALK namespaces. As of february 2011, we
add aliases languages per language (ex: r82719).
Since people here probably have lot of international contacts, would it
be possible to start translating the USER ns in as many languages as
possible for the MediaWiki 1.18 release ? :)
