I got a similar question from a supposedly Japanese reader who is in
Australia, which has its own chapter. She misunderstood WMF didn't
offer Japanese landing page and kindly offer to volunteer

Is there any change or fix of this issue? If someone is in a foreign
country with a chapter, there is no other mean but their one local
language page? One local language I say because this year no lang menu
seems not be given, and it's a trouble for those who wants to switch
the lang. I'm also afraid it would be a problem in multiligual nations
It's no criticism, just a description. I just want a summary of the
situation to give an answer to that kind lady in Australia which we at
OTRS got last week.
