MobileFrontend is a complex extension. Have you considered other mobile-friendly skins? For instance, you could try Timeless and let us know how it works for you with Translate:
MobileFrontend is not a bad idea: Timeless may be as convenient on mobile as MinervaNeue, but it’s less convenient on desktop as Vector. MF makes it possible to use two completely different skins on mobile and desktop. (Also, Timeless has a slightly larger padding on Special:Translate than MinervaNeue, at least on Meta.)
If turning on MobileFrontend for everyone is too risky, is it possible to make it opt-in using a preference or by making it a beta feature?
As a user I don’t know about any way to have different skins permanently set on mobile and on desktop.
I’ve played a bit with Timeless on mobile, and some pages like the preferences are quite hard to use on a small screen. MobileFrontend does a good job in simplifying things so that they work on narrow screens.
You can select your default skin in your preferences: https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-rendering
If you have found bugs or have feature requests for Timeless, please open a task :)
