Yeah, the Translate extension fundamentally doesn't work with VisualEditor in its current form, as I understand it. Much sadness.

I assume you mean translate tags as shown in the screenshot, because "translate templates" don't exist.

The screnshot seems to be about this excerpt:

More details at {{ll|Social media|Social media}}.

{{ll}} only creates a link to Special:MyLanguage (which is not even in Translate now). (In the Translate docs we recommend to use Special:MyLanguage directly, but what can you do.)
So the summary currently mentions the only thing which is not in the screenshot. :)
