SpecialUserlogin.php is great, except that
users see "Don't have a login? Create an account."
even if $wgLanguageCode = "zh-tw";
No wonder users say they didn't see where to create an account.
Follow the click trail in the account creation steps, and you will
encounter other critically placed English on mostly Chinese pages.
If any such English tidbits exist, they're because the translation is incomplete
or out-of-date. [[m:Localization statistics]] gives the zh-tw translation as

Actually, it's Taiwanese localization that sucks, not Chinese. Cantonese
localization is excellent. Other localizations that suck are Afrikaans, Arabic,
Azerbaijani, Bashkir, Belarusian, Bengali, Bishnupriya Manipuri, Kashubian,
Chuvash, Welsh, Estonian, Basque, Farsi, Faroese, Friulian, Frisian, Alemannic,
Hindi, Interlingua, Icelandic, Lojban, Georgian, Kannada, Kurdish, Latin,
Nahuatl, Occitan, Ossetic, Punjabi, Brazilian Portugese, Romani, Sardinian,
Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Tatar, Tuvan, Udmurt, Ukrainian, Kalmyk, Yiddish, and
Mandarin. Not to mention all the totally unlocalized languages. Can we take it
as a given that most languages' localizations suck and we would love people to
To Dan Jacobson, seemingly the fallback for when messages don't exist in zh-tw

Cantonese than to English? Virtually every message exists in the Cantonese
Language codes suck too!
