It’s also not great to have this at the very top.

Good day,

Sadly not as this message is hard wired into the source code: mediawiki-extensions-Translate/en.json at 7bef0ed3ec963baf391bece71f51c11afe0160a3 · wikimedia/mediawiki-extensions-Translate · GitHub

We’d have to spent some time forking it…

Have a nice day,
