I don't see the problem with going on using meta for translation. If you
think translations are difficult to find on meta, you can create a
"translation portal" (it seems to me it already exists as [[m:TR]] but I may
be wrong). We are precisely closing some "peripheral" wikis because
information is split in many places and that makes it difficult to find it.
Opening yet another wiki will not attract more people, but it is a damn good
way to lose people on the road.
