Although I would like this, too, it's not in my hands entirely. We need the
developer community of the products we support to stand behind this,
because we will demand that they will follow up on the translator
questions. Otherwise we would be just any localisation platform. We pride
ourselves to be the platform that cares about translators and real quality.
See https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Translating:New_project for details. I
would suggest that you get in touch with the developers and or translators
and discuss how they like their current solutions, and if they're open to
changing those.

See http://wiki.list.org/display/DEV/Internationalization (kinda recent)

OTRS might be another Wikimedia tool that could benefit from localisation.
As said: we're not diving in supporting projects without backup from the
developer community of those projects.
