Show some loading indicator while loading the template translator
Open, MediumPublic

Description

When the user initially clicked the section next to a template for the translation later published as https://fi.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Anna_Anthropy&oldid=16340035 , an empty infobox appeared, and for many seconds (perhaps over a minute?) nothing seemed to happen. The template translator seemed to have failed loading. At some point, when we had given up, the template translator loaded (i.e. the user was shown the dropdowns to select template fields and so on).

There should be a loading indicator which encourages the user to be patient (or to give up when appropriate).
