The English Wikipedia has had the official site terms since June 15.
The code for an override in all languages is now in place as per
http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Code/MediaWiki/52361 and the
messages are being translated through <translatewiki.net>, so nothing
should stand in the way of a Monday roll-out. These translated
messages will override any current implementations, but if
implementors have followed the official implementation guide, those
implementations shouldn't do any active harm.
