I checked three pages, two had a protection log entry as last change in history (a bug I believe) and one didn't have <translate> tags so broken from the point of the system: https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Manual:Glossary

I am fixing these pages on Meta:

  • for pages with no <translate> tag, often, an editor wanted to remove the possibility to translate. So translation administrator should just use “remove from translation” action link from Special:PageTranslation.
  • for pages which have been protected since they have been marked for translation, to workaround this bug, translation administrator should mark the page again for translation, using the following link: https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:PageTranslation&target=<Issued_page_name>&do=mark.

Another case:

The last history changes in history are an automatic move log entry (through translatable page moving system).

So this bug may concern all log entries related as last history change, and not only protections.
