MediaWiki:Sidebar and MediaWiki:Talkpagetext translation

MediaWiki:Sidebar is show on everypage and MediaWiki:Talkpagetext should be shown on every talk page editing. Their translation is hard to find and the page is actually protected. So should we create a section for them, something like:

Currently the message lack translation in Български, Česky, Dansk, Deutsch, Ελληνικά, Español... Please help to translate these words into your language. 

When they are translated, we can remove them from the list. Any better idea? -- Fengchao (talk) 01:33, 26 December 2012 (UTC)

Well, system messages are protected, so maybe it's simpler to just invite people to contribute a translation for the English string, perhaps adding it directly in the article, in a proper subsection, together with the name of the language or its locale tag, so that admins can install it easily.
MediaWiki:Sidebar can't be translated, as we've just discovered, but for example another string that can be translated is the "also in" text in the Table of Contents pages, we could add a request also for that, although there's already Talk:Table of Contents#"also in" translations.

So, what do you want to do here? If you still think the section is useful you can add it the way it seems most efficient to you, unfortunately I don't have better ideas at the moment... Otherwise I think we can close this discussion. -- Kynikos (talk) 07:23, 6 April 2013 (UTC)
Add it in ArchWiki:Contributing#Translating. Close. -- Fengchao (talk) 02:59, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
