I am wondering, whether it really is correct, that there is no documentation of
function or use of the single MediaWiki messages? If you try to translate
messages without knowing anything about their context, this really is hard. Is
there anywhere in this big wiki world any page, where I at least can see, which
Special pages or whatever use these messages?

I am afraid not, which is understandable if you consider how quickly the messages evolve—the page would get obsolete very soon.

I always look into the source code to see where a message is used, but that requires at least a basic PHP (and probably also MediaWiki) knowledge.
