There's a new proposal to localize Lua modules in a more modern, safe, and convenient manner: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Translatable_modules .

In the foreseeable future it will only affect multilingual sites, such as Wikidata, Commons, Meta, and mediawiki.org, but at a later time it may also be deployed on Wikipedias and other projects.

It will be great if experienced module developers could take a look at the project page, https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Translatable_modules , and its subpages, especially https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Translatable modules/Proposed solutions . Your feedback will be very helpful in implementing this project in a way that really benefits all the editors.
