Ermm… does it? I thought the best practice was as follows:

1) “Please see [[{{ns:project}}:Help]].”
2) “More details in [[Project:Help|the help pages]].”
3) “Please see {{ns:project}}:Help”

MediaWiki does normalize the _destination URL_ of the links, but not the
displayed text, i.e. the displayed result in your #1 would be equivalent to
[[{{ns:Project}}:Help|Project:Help]], i.e. English-language “Project” is
always displayed.
