No, she was referring to the current problems there are. The wiki needs 
to be upgraded, so that we can start using the translate extension. 
However, there are problems with the upgrade.

Although the German wiki is there, it hasn't been opened officially 
because of the upgrade problem, but also because interlinking doesn't 
work as expected, yet.

The German wiki was meant to test everything with and get everything 
right, so that the wiki's in other languages will work without major flaws.
