Thanks Niklas for the reply.
Notwithstanding the subject line's snark, and despite the fact that
components of the problem have been solved for a long time, from a user's
perspective there hasn't been progress on the handicap (not being able to
translate from languages other than English on Meta) as a whole for years
now, which does run counter to our ethos of being multilingual and
encouraging contributions in all languages.
If Kunal succeeds, that would be great, but if he doesn't or it takes too
long to integrate his work, I would recommend prioritising this issue
somewhat higher and giving it the necessary resources at the WMF.

Best regards,
