If we can provide translations at the same level of confidence as they can be found for the CC licence, this would solve the issue. It should just be a text that does not have to start with a disclaimer.

If a number of people state that the translation is accurate and that statement is also supported by the OSMF asking for a decision, that would be enough.
That support could be silent - a link to the translation and no disclaimers would be sufficient.
