I agree with Amir.

Especially since we can use aliases to record possible alternative names as well.

As I wrote above, using the label in a clever way should be enough. Creating a sitelink without a target article is not desirable. A translated label should be good enough as the basis for the name of the future article.

I hope to integrate this as smoothly as possible into the ContentTranslation workflow Some Time Soon.
