I don't think staff has ever touched translation on WMF wiki, it's 
always been done by the almighty heroes Cbrown1023, Aphaia, Az1568 with 
their gazillion edits and a few others. It's unfair to think they'd have 
something to say.
Meta has the Translate extension, the translators and the community. At 
this point it's clear that foundationwiki is going to rot, we should 
just set up all the policies and important documents on Meta for 
translation and start the work again; we've been stuck for too many 
years now. Eventually, the links will go where the value is and nobody 
will care about the wasteland at foundationwiki.
