There are often project-wide sitenotices for things like the elections
and Wikimania. As I understand it translation is generally coordinated
on meta, http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Translation_requests.

Obviously this would be a big piece of work to do, but I would be very
much surprised if there wasn't going to be some sort of sitenotice
about the elections at some point, especially when voting starts.
