I am not sure what you mean. es.wp and (almost) de.wp only use Commons,
they do not have any local uploads. And I wish all PD images which are
stored on en.wp locally now would be ever transferred to Commons by bots.
It could save a lot of my time. And I do not see why translators are a
problem, translating a description to an existing Commons image is way
easier than to store another one locally.
