as far as I know, temp sysop is easily granted for any technical
purpose including translation etc. In your case, Mormegil, I strongly
endorse your request if you would like to have it based on your long
term devotion and good reputation.

For central notice, unless I misunderstand, it can be set both for
multiple wikis (e.g. for all projects of a certain language) and for a
single wiki (e.g. for Czeck Wikinews). If it is much easier, it would
be an idea to set up single notice for each Czeck projects ... anyway
there are only up to nine projects.
