How can mature Wikipedias like English and German support the development of local language Wikipedias?

Typically these "mature" wikipedias have no feeling for the needs of smaller Wikipedias. They impose their "superior" ways. When you then consider that the newbie experience is really nasty for these "mature" wikipedias AND that the growth of editors is key to the health of smaller projects then it is not so clear cut that they help at all.
