I can competently answer this bit, at least :-)

We've currently got OTRS queues, and someone on the end of them, for
af, als, ar, cs, da, de, el, en, es, fi, fr, he, hr, it, ja, nds, nl,
no/nn, pl, pt, ro, ru, sk, sr, sv, tr, zh.

(At a quick glance... wp's over 80k articles, the top tier or so,
we're missing Catalan, Esperanto, Ukranian)

When material that *isn't* in one of those languages comes in (offhand
I remember encountering Bulgarian or Indonesian) we usually beat
around the bushes to find a trusted admin on that project who also
speaks English (or some other common language), tell them about it,
and see what can be worked out.

I don't know how good we are at it, but the world hasn't collapsed yet :-)
