Tip: Don't use an interpreter EVER

If the signer doesn't speak English, don't use an interpreter.
The notary is required by law to be able to communicate DIRECTLY with the signer. If the notary knows enough of the language to communicate enough to get the job done, thats fine. Don't allow relatives to interpret for you during your notary work. Its not legal.

If you can't communicate directly enough to get the job done, cancel the signing. Stay within the law!
