Not able to even read the wiki in an enforced incognito mode (removing all private session keys, disabling some scripts, just render the content)?

Then we should revert them to use some alternate read-only mirrors (but most of these mirrors are augmented with advertizing and do not preserve the privacy of their visitors, unless they follow the new European RGPD rules strictly: we copuld divert them by sending them to a mirror hosted in a respectable site in the EU where at least RGPD is respected and enforced).

If we don't, then users will just see some contents cached by Google (and with various site trackers enabled).

We can also send them to a WM promotional website managed by some chapters (or by the Wikipedia Zero program), or send them to an offline archive (possibly via an external application and a downloadable database of contents).

Blocking simple visitors only is IMHO very brutal and opposed to our sommon objectives: making the data available to anyone anywhere. OK we can block contributors (including spseudo-anonymous IP users).

We could also promote the use of a web proxy for read-only access to the live content.

So this transalted text will be posted on several pages with the same English content below? Or will be in an autotranslated template that will be posted only a single page?
Why should not this message appear as an announcement posted on any page of the wiki, or part of a newfeed posted by email or on several talk pages or forums?

For me it's jut look like a summary for another page, ideal for inclusion in an autotranslated template and what is below is unrelated. If this is used only a single page, you don"t need the template, but you would translate the full article directly. Then a separate summary announcement could be made.

As they won't be able to access the wikis, it won't be on a wiki page at all, but on a very simple landing page. See see and for context. (:
