A bot that can be given a list of the important templates, or categories of templates, would be good for starting a new project. Once articles exist, at least some meaning comes through and it's more likely people will edit them.
(Machine translations would be nice too, but realistically if a machine translator exists for a language then we usually have a wiki for it. It might still be useful for a whole new project - eg a new area of coverage that is going to be set up in common languages. It might not be perfect but some meaning will come through and it'll help, much like town/city/village bot articles did.)
