A lot has happened in the last 15 years as you know. "Google, with 1.7 billion users worldwide, offers language options in 287 languages, the jw.org website, with only 8.6 million readers,"[1] provides content in 1084 language options.[2] That is 95 languages more than 3 years ago.

The website is now notable as it's being available in over 1080 languages, including 109 sign languages, providing literature in even more languages. It has languages in which only jw.org provides written publications. It also hosts the worlds only complete Bible in American Sign Language.

Most languages are available on Wikidata too.[3]

I believe that just as the Polish Wikipedia has done (here: pl:Jw.org), a stand alone page for English Wikipedia is justified.

A few sources to take from

To quote atlaslocalization.com :

It’s not particularly surprising that the website offering the most language options in the world is focused on religious teachings rather than commercial purposes. This is because people view jw. org as a source of religious revelation and seek to spread it to the entire world. It is understandable that a faith that wants to spread all over the world should be found in every language.
