A few responses.
First, Nathan and William, we will share as much information as we can, but
will need to be careful about what we say about the individuals involved
for legal and safety reasons. This is indeed related to increasing
resilience across Wikipedias and not at all specifically for ZhWP. I do
think it's important for us to offer some additional support there, given
the current situation, but we are looking at increasing safety everywhere.
Leo, thank you for your feedback on the translation, which was provided by
native Chinese speakers. Since I myself am completely unable to read
Chinese, I don't know the nature of the issue, but I do know that in the
past we have had some issues with movement-specific terms being translated.
I recall once when "free in speech" was mistranslated as "free as in
- which we always deliberately try to avoid. :)

Thank you for taking these very difficult actions to protect both the
members of our community as well as the values that it seeks to uphold. I
also appreciate the degree of transparency provided and hope that more
information will be disclosed as it is appropriate. I imagine questions
will be asked about how these individual accounts were selected for office
actions and the contours of the risk both to the individuals behind these
accounts and the wider community. Any information that the WMF is able to
safely share will help all of us understand better what the threats are and
how we may better support the movement's goals in jurisdictions where our
values are not respected.
Thank you again,
